Architectonic

 

Welcome to Architectonic – Connecting Travel & Architecture

adjective:  ar·chi·tec·ton·ic  \\ ˌär-kə-ˌtek-ˈtä-nik \\

Origin: Mid 17th century: via Latin from Greek arkhitektonikos, from arkhitektōn (see architect).

Definition: (adjective) (of an artistic composition) having a clearly defined structure, especially one that is artistically pleasing.

Anyone who has followed our journey over the years will know of our ever-growing interest in monuments and architecture. Our enthusiasm doesn’t extend to all styles, however, more specifically we are drawn to over-the-top, concrete-dominated buildings often referred to as Brutalism or Modernist architecture. Housing estates, circuses, retail complexes, government buildings and even a crematorium – you name it and we’ve probably gone searching for it at some point or another over the past few years.

And as for monuments – our interest is firmly embedded in countries that were once part of the communist world – those that belonged to the former Eastern Bloc or the Soviet Union plus the Balkan countries that used to be collectively known as Yugoslavia. We have spent a lot of time in the region tracking down monuments to glory, enormous monoliths and, specifically in the Balkans, spomeniks, which are Tito-era World War II-related monuments and memorials that remain scattered throughout every corner of the former Yugoslavia.  We have spent a lot of time in the region tracking down monuments to glory, enormous monoliths and, specifically in the Balkans, spomeniks, which are Tito-era World War II-related monuments and memorials that remain scattered throughout every corner of the former Yugoslavia.

We like stark, we like giantism and we like ugly-pretty. We’ve written about how our admiration for such architectural styles came about in an article entitled Back in the U.S.S.R. … and the aim of this page is not to repeat what’s already been said. Instead, we want to photographically showcase some of the magnificent, and they are magnificent in our opinion, structures and monuments that we have found while travelling throughout the region.

As this is a visual page, we have provided only basic information on each building or monument (the full name, city and country, the architect and dates of construction/completion as well as the GPS coordinates). Just enough to pique your interest and allow you to track it down. However, if there is a particular structure that goes beyond a mere curiosity pique, let us know as we may be able to provide more details. Equally if you know any of the architects names or building completion dates listed as unknown, we would appreciate hearing from you.

And why a limit of one hundred photographs?

Architectonic is an ongoing project. We initially had over three hundred photos but the page couldn’t handle it. It wouldn’t load quickly enough and was a pain to administer. What’s more, we have at least another two hundred images of buildings and monuments that we have documented waiting in the wings. Therefore, one of the tasks on our to-do-list is to look at a better way of presenting this section of our site. So, if you are a fan of this style or simply have a fascination with communist-era memorabilia then remember to sporadically check back to see what progress we have made. Alternatively join us on our dedicated Facebook and Instagram accounts where we feature a daily photo and will announce any updates on Architectonics.
