Abstract

“Borba” Federal Award for Architecture was awarded for the first time on February 19th 1966, celebrating the day of the publishing the first issue of the newspaper back in 1922 in Zagreb by, then illegal, Communist Party of Yugoslavia. The unusual alliance between a daily magazine and architecture was considered a chance for promoting the achievements in architectural production on federal level, hence making the profession step out of the anonymity. However, since “Borba” became the herald of the Socialist Alliance of Working People of Yugoslavia (SSRNJ) in 1954, the controversies regarding the award arose inevitably, following the three decades long discussion over the qualities and the mere existence of “Yugoslav architecture”.
