SERBIA IS FACING THE BIGGEST NATURAL DISASTER IN PAST 120 YEARS

Serbia is going through the worst floods ever recorded. The situation is much harder than can be imagined! Thousands of people are being evacuated, many of them are still waiting to be rescued.

Serbia is bracing for another flood wave from the Sava, swollen by the heaviest rains since records began 120 years ago.

Tens of thousands of people have been displaced and swaths of agricultural land devastated. Total number of victims hasn’t been announced yet.

The most critical situation is in the Sava, Kolubara, Mačva, Morava, Pomoravlje districts in western and central parts of the country.

The situation is the worst in the Belgrade municipality of Obrenovac. Police and army in helicopters are trying to prevent further damage, after the Kolubara river burst its banks and flooded 90 per cent of the town.

Serbia receives help from abroad but much more is needed, please publish those appeals at your news and help rescuing operations.

OUR BLOG

It was great for xarchitekten to be invited to BDW as Austrian Architects We were expecting a great time by experiencing all this different thinking’s on design issues. At first there was the road movie from Vienna to Belgrade: 600 Kilometers of flat land, an immense impression of wideness - like riding on a green ocean. Arriving Belgrade we were hosted by the perfect Organization and accompanied by very nice people of BDW. The most valuable element of BDW´s Performing, Discussing, Lecturing in the Theater, Visiting the Clubs and Restaurants of Belgrade has been the linking excellent thinking and facing experts coming from different fields of design as well as different regions of Europe. xarchitekten are convinced about the great role of BDW as an Place for multidisciplinary Evolution, therefore BDW is facing a great future. Hopefully xarchitekten will be connected to BDW again.
