Keywords:sacred architecture, Franciscans, Tuzla, Zlatko Ugljen
The work deals with the architecture of the Franciscan convent and church of Saint Peter and Paul in Tuzla – a complex built during the 80s of the XX century, according to а project done by one of the most prominent domestic architects, the academician Zlatko Ugljen. Although the Franciscan convent existed in Tuzla even earlier, the site of the contemporary complex is entirely new, which allowed Ugljen to produce а new language in architecture and the identity of the place, unburdened by the historical legacy.
After the introductory historical discussion, the work addresses several proposed solutions, and afterwards the developed project, as well as its transformation and changes throughout the time, up until nowadays. Besides that, short review on the interior design and artistic decoration of the complex is presented. Work also gives short insight on the important Ugljen’s projects, with the aim of correct positioning of this project within the rich author’s opus.
