Project outcomeRealization

In Zloković’s architectural work, his significant contribution to the design development of the typology of health facilities in Serbian modern architecture stands out, both in the interwar and postwar period, through several significant realizations and conceptual solutions. One of those realizations is the Public Health Center in Risan (Montenegro), built in the late 1930s, which is also an example of modern facilities that Zloković built in smaller towns, contributing to the development and humanization of the local community. After the project for the University Children’s Clinic, which ended in the Second World War, Zloković worked on three more health facilities projects until the construction of the Health Center in Risan – Stevan Semze Hospital in Sombor (Serbia), the Pavilion of the University Clinic for Infectious Diseases in Belgrade and the hospital (maternity hospital?) for an unknown location, through which he typologically improved modern design aspects. Elaborating on the basic archetypal structure of the hospital in Risan and guided by the functionality of its contents, Zloković used a system of modular measures adapted to the basic structural system (reinforced concrete structures) and applied in determining the size of openings, layout and relations of individual parts of the building structure (parts and elements of the façade, pergola over the access annex raised on pillars). In the panorama of Risan, modern geometrized architecture contrasted with the bare mountain massif in the hinterland of the place, but its character, human-sized and rational in design, rested on the architectural values ​​of the Mediterranean.
