Location: Vukovar, Croatia
Author: Radionica arhitekture

Design team: Goran Rako, Josip Sabolić
Designed: 2008 - 2012

Area: 500 m2

 

On the edge of Vučedol archaeological park, next to a steep slope, a separated object of the planetarium is planned. Distant enough from the nearest buildings and existing artificial night lighting. Partly buried in to the site, partly above ground. In the underground part is a planetarium dome which will be able to "rewind" the night sky display from the sky we see today to the one visible in the Vučedol time. There is also a small observatory with a telescope in the upper part of the building.
