Home of Revolution
Location: Nikšić, Montenegro
Constructed: 1976-1989 (unfinished)
Architect: Marko Mušič
Alternative names: Dom Revolucije and House of Revolution
Genre: Brutalist, Socialist architecture, former Yugoslavia
The Home of Revolution was designed as a memorial to commemorate partisans who fought and died during the National Liberation War (World War II) and as a cultural centre for the city of Nikšić. Construction started in 1976 but as the project progressed, it became more ambitious and costs spiralled. Work on the Home of Revolution halted in 1989 due to financial reasons and, thereafter, it became a casualty of the Yugoslav Wars and is currently abandoned. Despite 2016 plans to rejuvenate the unfinished complex, part of the structure was demolished in May 2020 for safety reasons. Marko Mušič is a Slovenian architect whose other work includes the brutalist Kolašin Municipal Assembly and Saints Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje.
