Lighthouse Pomorac by Ivan Caric
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 Lighthouse Pomorac by Ivan Caric depicts a monument to a fallen sailor located in a neglected part of Split, close to the center, designed by the above-mentioned architect during the Yugoslav era. The choice of pastel colors indicates the fragility of the building and its powerlessness in the face of decay.
