Museum of Aviation
Location: Belgrade, Serbia
Architect: Ivan Štraus
Genre: Modernist, Socialist architecture, former Yugoslavia
Located adjacent to Belgrade’s Nikola Tesla Airport, the glass-encased circular building is one of the city’s most notable modernist structures. Work on the museum started in the mid-1970s but the construction dragged on due to technical and financial issues and was not completed until 1988. The complex was opened to the public on 21st May 1989. Bosnian architect, Ivan Štraus, who also designed the former Holiday Inn in Sarajevo among other works, received an award from the Yugoslavian Borba newspaper for his design of the museum building.
