Form and outcome of the project
A notable conceptual solution from Zloković’s early modernist phase is the competition work for arranging the Terazije Terrace in Belgrade, considered a space of significant urban-architectural intervention in the central city zone. Zloković’s work Terazije Terrace, i.e., the Belgrade Fair, was published in the collection on modern architecture, “You need to know … the progress of civil engineering. Problems of Contemporary Architecture”, edited in 1932. by the Zagreb architect Stjepan Planić. Using the leveling of the terrain of the river Sava amphitheater, Zloković places the mega structure of the Belgrade Fair, conceived as a city business center, in a block space with an inner courtyard and bordered streets. The gradation of the volumes of the massive structure, with the variation of the shape of the base and the organization of its masses is adjusted to the lowering of the terrain and the course of movement from the Terazije area to Kraljice Natalije Street. The dominant modernist approach is represented in the design, which achieves a rational appearance, characteristic to modern industrial facilities. “Excellent balance of simplified masses” – that is how the architect Đurđe Bošković commented on Zloković’s project for the Terazije terrace.
