Andjelka Badnjar Gojnić – Diagrams of the Center for Housing IMS and articulation of housing construction in socialist Yugoslavia
The topic deals with the role that diagrams of Center for Housing IMS (Institute for Testing Materials Serbia) have had in housing development in socialist Yugoslavia. The first part follows the argument of Cornelius Castoriadis related to geopolitical position of Yugoslavia and country’s 1948 split with USSR. Afterwards the talk addresses the processes of machinery import from the West and qualification of people for construction works following industrialization. Finally, the conclusion focuses on the roles of IMS prefabricated system and diagrams developed at IMS department Center for Housing. These will be argued as operative tools of engineers and architects in their attempt toward modernization and articulation of migrations from rural areas to cities.
