Elementary School in Selska Street
Architect Zemljak studied at Graz and Prague. In 1920 he returned to Zagreb. After a period spent in the atelier of Viktor Kovacic, Zagreb's leading architect of that time, he got a place in the city department of construction. His main occupation as an architect of that department was projecting elementary schools and kindergartens in the suburbs, like Selska Street. It was the critical reflection upon Le Corbusier's work and study of Dutch functionalist architecture (Architect J.J.P. Oud) that determined Zamljak's work.
