For decades Croatia has been the holiday paradise on the Adriatic coast unabated. So the tourist industry represents the key economic sector in the country. It is built on an infrastructure that was developed during the Socialist drive to modernise in the 1960s and ’70s, an era when priority was given to spatial planning and explicit modernity in architecture and art were part of the nation’s corporate design. The exhibition provides a genealogy of large-scale vacation architecture on the Adriatic coast, including the physical and economic tranformations undergone by these complexes since the collapse of Yugoslavia. The projects concerned are of a remarkably high quality, although today they have become melancholy ruins, been modestly renovated, or entirely and innovatively redeveloped.
