Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC, Canada

a handful of photos taken by me as I went to visit recently.



WAC Bennett Library.


Student Union building.

Convocation Mall from Freedom Square.

Freedom Square and Academic Quadrangle

Maths and sciences building.

The complex is absolutely monumental. However, there are a few issues, not with the architecture, but how it's treated:

1. There is rubbish all over the ground.
2. The concrete is badly taken care of. there are strange leaks everywhere and moss growing in places.

It's sad to see something so beautiful become neglected, but at the very least it's not up for demolition.

When I went to Vancouver I checked it out and the concrete was indeed very stained. It needs a restoration, definitely.

It's to be expected in a very wet and damp climate.

Abandoned Yugoslavia Monuments that look like they're from the Future

By Crack Two on Friday, April 15, 2011

These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like Tjentište, Kozara and Kadinjača), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and Niš). They were designed by different sculptors (Dušan Džamonja, Vojin Bakić, Miodrag Živković, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan Bogdanović, Gradimir Medaković...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost.

There's something about raw concrete and skylights that looks ethereal.
