The book 20th Century Sacred Architecture of Zagreb written by Zorana Sokol Gojnik is a systematic, critical, and scientific contribution to a complex issue. Namely, it refers to a contribution of a specific architectural and urban planning topic to the development of Zagreb city during politically turbulent periods. The book presents the results of the first systematic research into relevant data as well as an analysis and critical assessment of fifty realized projects. The selected examples are extensively studied in terms of their spatial and theological characteristics. This research is thus a valuable contribution to the history of modern Croatian architecture. It confirms the hypothesis that the 20th century liturgical architecture in Zagreb took on a new identity of urban interpretation and architectural design, distinct from the earlier historical periods and proves that its origin lies in a wider European context of which it forms an integral part.
