These incredible Yugoslavian monuments have been doing the rounds- and for good reason. They were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place. Concrete beauties. Link: here.

Next up is this new pavilion called the Metropol Parasol, designed by J.Mayer H. Architects for Seville in Spain, it's one of the largest wooden structures ever created. To me this is a truly modern buidling, innovative in it's design and construction but also bringing in modern ideas about the city, a public space which is definitley a destination. Link: here
