Sinturbanizam (synthesis urbanism) is Vjenceslav Richter's full-fledged utopian vision in the socialist Yugoslavia in the 60s. The idea is about compressing the cities into “ziggurats” to solve mobility issues, exploring facades with cascading apartment units, each with a generous terrace. Each ziggurat functions as a self-managing community. The utopian vision is contemporary to Yona Friedman’s urban voids, Japanese Metabolism and Archigram due to their shared characteristics - a focus on mobility, a technocratic approach to solving problem, organicism as the underlying metaphor for the solution and megastructure as specific form of solution.
The drawings show collage developments of megastructures derived from the utopian vision of sinturbanizam and the concept of Mostar hill-town for Beirut Apartment.
