Batric Mijovic: Izbor Department Store, 1980D–1984

  • Bar, Montenegro, Show on map
  • #COM #Eastern Europe
  • An excellent example of the utopian socialist buildings of former Tito-Yugoslavia, far from the boring and uninspired socialist prefab-building of the late 1980's.

    The Department store forms a complete center with piazza and different urban situations

  • The Department store is mostly intact, but has lately been turned mainly into a cheap Chinese shopping place. The current owner has been wanting to demolish the whole center for years to invest in a new shopping mall on that site.
