Description Change this

The bus terminal in Podgorica near the city center was built in 1968. Kana Radević created an architecture that contributed significantly to the identity of Podgorica. With its massing, form and materials certainly was influenced by Le Corbusier’s building of the Parliament in Chandigarh, which was built a few years earlier. The main motif of the building is the curved roof canopy, which covers the building like a crown. Kana combines raw concrete with the local Morača pebble, which she previously used successfully on the hotel building.
