Abstract


Historiography expresses a firm point of view that the movement of Brutalism did not have a more significant influence on Serbian architecture. Several researches in their essays point out that there are, however, certain works by Serbian architects that could be denoted as Brutalist in style. Nevertheless, after scientific analysis of the representative examples materialized in raw concrete and brick and their comparison with authentic interpretations of Brutalist principles, it is evident that Serbia does have a significant number of architectural works representing Brutalism. The aim of the research was to consider to what extent Brutalist architecture in Serbia was the consequence of architects being inspired by modern world Brutalism architecture, or whether its emergence stemmed from necessity, i.e. specific social circumstances in Serbia during the 60s and 70s of the XX century.

Keywords
