A NEW FACE FOR ZADAR
Cannes is the city of cinema, Zadar has to become the city of youth, of youthful culture.

The Biennial of Young artists, a yearly Woodstock, youth movie festival,sporting events and meetings, jazz and blues festival, universitary seminars and meetings.
let us not forget that architecture is the simplest way to articulate time and space,to model reality and to make people dream. In a word, a project of architecture like MTV.

an office district, a residential area and several public activities. the project is inspirated by a true pop attitude, directly translated in volumes and shapes.
