Finding similar buildings in our catalogue are not so unusual. Recently brought attention the following three ones.
Brutal icon, the ten-story Hotel du Lac is unique with its distinctive architecture and concrete construction. The design concept resulted in a building that has a top level twice as wide than its ground level. Similar building, the Elektroprivreda building in Sarajevo, was destroyed when the city was under blockade and military siege from 1992 to 1995.
The Temple of Monte Grisa, a landmark located on the edge of the Karst Plateau, is overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The unusual framework and concrete shapes resemble to the International Conference Centre in Kyoto.
What have Rome and Poznan in common? Palazzetto dello Sport by Annibale Vitellozzi in collaboration with Pier Luigi Nervi consists of a circular system of 60 meters in diameter and the cover of reinforced concrete prefabricated modules. Very similar to the Sports arena in Poznan by Jerzy Turzeniecki.
Bruno Zevi compared the building in Rome to the Pantheon, suggesting analogies and parallels with the building of Hadrian: based on the same premise Zevi noted that, where the Pantheon has a spherical shape, structure Nervi and Vitellozzi comprises a hemisphere in which light enters laterally and expands the ideal space, mitigating the monumental effect.
