Top 10 reasons to visit Zagreb

Now's the time to visit Zagreb, its capital and biggest city. Since it's not as touristy as the coast, Zagreb is conducive to a leisurely approach -- but don't delay. 1 Sample the cafe culture: Downtown outdoor cafes are crammed with caffeine-seeking voyeurs, assessing passersby while gossiping or debating politics and art with an ever-changing retinue of friends. Friendly, funny and yakky, many of the city's 777,000 residents speak English.

Project Zagreb: Project Zagreb: Transition as Condition, Strategy, Practice Editor: Eve Blau Editor: Ivan Rupnik Actar, Barcelona and New York, 2007 Zagreb is the perfect site for examining the generative dynamic of transition: currently preparing for Croatia's entry into the European Union and negotiating the rocky shoals of the "transition economy," but also a city in which political and economic transition has been the status quo for the last century and a half.

3D Model of Zagreb - January 2011, Volume 25, Number 1 - Archive. A 3D city model is a digital representation of the Earth's surface and associated built objects in the urban area.

3D Model of Zagreb - January 2011, Volume 25, Number 1 - Archive

Digital city models are usually classified by level of detail (LoD). There are five different categories of urban area presentation, from LoD0 to LoD4 (see for detailed description of LoDs page 27). Various LoD categories also imply difference in accuracy and minimal dimensions of modelled objects/object details. The general decision in this case was that the 3D city model of Zagreb should be LoD3. Optimising Data The aim of the entire project was to produce a high-quality and updated geodetic survey map which would contain all the topographic data, including a digital terrain model (DTM), 3D model of buildings, and a true orthophoto map. Orthophotos One of the products to be delivered by this project was true orthophotos. Structural Elements Roof structures were defined by photogrammetric mapping of roof lines.

Urban design, strategic architecture

Today it is an exhibition hall. When Eve Blau speaks of Milan Lenuci, the city surveyor of Zagreb in the late 19th century, a note of reverence enters her voice. “He’s one of our great heroes,” she says. Lenuci’s finest accomplishment was the “Green Horseshoe,” a U-shaped series of parks and promenades surrounding Zagreb’s center and providing a refreshing refuge from urban traffic and noise. But what Blau admires even more than the work itself is the way Lenuci managed to bring it into being. In Lenuci’s time, Croatia (of which Zagreb is the capital) was part of the Hapsburg Empire, and not a very important part.

“Instead of trying to build it all at once, he started with projects that had a lot of popular appeal – skating rinks, tennis courts, soccer fields, a new university building. After the Hapsburg Empire fell, Croatia joined a confederation of states that became the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1929. An Urban Strategy for Zagreb. An Urban Strategy for Zagreb by Vladimir Mattioni Overview The area between the town's two main communication routes--the urban railway and the highway--is the site of most intensive urban development in Zagreb, and a space that possesses tremendous potential.

An Urban Strategy for Zagreb

This area is about 18 km (11 miles) long, and it varies in width from one to two kilometres, covering approximately 30 square kilometers. The road and railway are connected by transverse links, from Zagrebacka ulica in the west to Heinzelova ulica in the east. The Railway The railway line from Podsused to Culinec is an arterial route that defines the city. Passing from one end of the city to the other, through its very center, this route serves all urban functions, from housing, production and commercial activities, to the city institutions, squares and parks.
