AESTHETIC CONTRASTS OF CONTEMPORARY URBAN ARCHITECTURE: RARE HIGH ACHIEVEMENTS AND PREVAILING WANDERING
The period between the two World Wars was a golden age of the rise of Belgrade and other cities in Serbia. After the Second World War, there was a period of stagnation in urban areas, but there were also high achievements in the field of urban reconstruction. With the social changes that took place in the last two decades of the 20th century, with the advent of transition, the attitude towards the urban renewal of cities in Serbia, especially Belgrade, also changed. These changes brought higher quantity, and lower and lower aesthetic quality of new construction in cities. This possible view of a small part of quality, but also inappropriate architectural - urban practice in the field of urban reconstruction of Belgrade, is accompanied by a picture of the social context in its basic features.
