The Yearbook of the Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb for the academic year 2012/13, second in the newly initiated cycle, confirms the school’s readiness to deal with the challenges brought by the civilizational moment, as well as its possibility to rely on an almost century-long tradition. And while the work of previous generations hasn’t been documented enough and can instead be implicitly seen in the acheivements of Croatian architects in Croatia and the world, the realized Yearbooks indicate in details the knowledges adopted and cultivated at the Faculty, both in educational work with the students and in scientific research activity of the Faculty’s employees. This knowledge, unrestrained (but not uninformed) of numerous obstacles the reality of construction puts before the architectural discipline, is the foundation from which the architectural culture develops. Knowing the education assurdley enables a better understanding of ‘concrete construction’, and the autonomous quality of the projects cultivated at the Faculty is encouraging for both the architectural practice and the ‘everydayness’ of the architectural discipline in Croatia.
