Exhibition Andrija Mutnjaković: Visionary Architecture opened Tuesday, 19 December 2017 at 6 pm in Oris House of Architecture. The exhibition encompassed a wide range of professional activities of architect Andrija Mutnjaković – from numerous competition entries, realisations to minutely elaborated theoretical and utopian works.
Engaged Architecture is the title of the first and, to this day, the only retrospective exhibition of Andrija Mutnjaković, held in February 1975 at the Gallery of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. In the exhibition and the selection of catalogue’s illustrations, curator Antoaneta Pasinović focused on Mutnjaković’s visionary architecture – different sorts of research in the fields of kinetic architecture and biourbanism. The intention was clear – to emphasize the part of Mutnjaković’s work that he considered the most valuable: Hollywood Villa (Domobil), housing neighbourhoods Urb-mobil in Luxembourg, Petržalka in Bratislava, S(j)enjak in Osijek and New Belgrade, the city centres of South Zagreb and Tel Aviv, Saint Peter’s Church in Split. All these projects were an authentic answer to the 1950s crisis of high modernist architecture and the functional city, devised so as to meet the social and psychological needs of individuals by creating different and experientially rich surroundings.
