Dalmacijavino Wine cellars by Stanko Fabris
In his minimalistic graphic design series DECODING, author Ivan Milas presents anthological works of Dalmatian socialist architecture. Once upon a time, these magnificent creations lived in symbiosis with space and their surroundings, but today they have fallen into oblivion and have been completely neglected. Through his minimalist design, the author reinterprets the original architectural concept of these capital achievements of Croatian modern architecture and points to their inevitable fate of neglect and decay.
The author’s artwork Dalmacijavino Wine Cellars by Stanko Fabris, shows a neglected factory that was once part f a much larger complex belonging to Dalmacijavino, one of Croatia’s largest wineries. Today, thanks to its location, the ruins of this complex stoically welcome tourists as they disembark from just-docked luxury cruise ships. The choice of pastel colors indicates the fragility of the building and its powerlessness in the face of decay.
