Genex Tower, a 35 floor skyscraper in Belgrade (Serbia), which was designed in 1980 by Mihajlo Mitrovic in brutalist style. It is formed by two towers connected with revolving restaurant at the top. Its height is 115 meters and is current tallest highrise in Belgrade.
One of the towers is occupied by Genex Group. The tower got its popular name after Genex even though its official name is Western City Gate. It was chosen to build a highrise gate so it can greet people arriving via Belgrade Airport from where Genex is easily seeable.
The second, taller tower, is used for residential purposes.
In the cirrcular top there is a rotating restaurant.
The building is located in Novi Beograd municipallity.
Well in Serbia, Plecnik is certainly the most famous Slovene architect. This is his only work in Serbia. The seat of Belgrade's catholic "nadbiskupija".Actually, I doubt that Plecnik would be the best Slovene arhitect. Barely any non-slovene architecture oriented book mentions him.
