Radovan building, designed by Slavko Löwy, 1934., the first skyscraper in Zagreb.
It fits well into traditional urbanism evnironment, oherwise it would be a dull building had it been built in the low density suburbia. It has a ground floor (corner) shop which is a key element of every vital street.
Architectural taboo: dense, historic cities are more attractive than the modern ones.
They will not teach you this in school, neither it is possible to build a dense city today according to urban code.
Compared to an average man who wants a pink house with pitched roof architectural education is progressive, but compared to the complex nature of cities architectural education is backwards because it rejects historic user experience and imposes straight lines and boxy designs.
Can you imagine a successful startup rejecting their users' experience? Thats what architects and urbanists do today - they reject 10,000 years of urban user experience.
Don't be offended. That's just my opinion. Cheers!
