Nikola Dobrović, the Serbian architect and urban planner, is generally considered to be Yugoslavia’s most important modern architect, having significantly contributed to the nation’s post-war identity. Recognised among the European intellectual avant-garde, he was a pioneer among Yugoslavian architects in resisting the influence of tradition. Dobrović is best known for his Federal Ministry of Defence building in Belgrade, bombed by NATO in 1999, and enjoyed a prolific career in cities like Prague, Dubrovnik and Belgrade. Dobrović’s life, career and achievements, not to mention a rich and complex body of work that resists simple categorisation, are documented in full.
