Description Change this

After World War II the building became the headquarters of the Belgrade publishing graphic Institute (BIGZ). The building is located in a prominent position along the river Sava. It occupies the dimensions of 60x75 meters and has the lower body of five and the higher of eleven floors. Top floor is defined as a semi-circular tower. Facades are defined with ribbon windows. Brašovan defined optimal solution for the organization of the production process with the free plan and reinforced concrete structure in the production floors. Spacious roof terrace on top floor provides a fascinating look at the center of Belgrade and affirms the modernist postulates of Le Corbusier architecture. This building is one of the paradigms of modernism in Belgrade.
