The Wider Image: Yugoslavia's brutalist relics fascinate the Instagram generation
Genex Tower, also known as The Western City gate, stands in Belgrade, Serbia, March 1, 2019. The building consists of two soaring pillars, connected by an aerial bridge. The tower is one of the most significant examples of brutalism, an architectural style popular in the 1950s and 1960s, based on crude, block-like forms cast from concrete. "Genex tower is among the most interesting sight. People see it on their way from the airport and it immediately draws their attention," said Vojin Muncin, manager of the Yugotour sightseeing agency which guides tourists around the Serbian capital.
