An Island as an Experiment: -Goli Otok- -We are obsessed, excited or terrified - not necessarily in that order - by islands and their mysterious, haunting charm- (Baldachinno, 2005 p. 247; Clarke, 2001, p.9; Durell 1960, p.1) This book explores the design methods for islands, specifically those that one connects with the terms of separation, isolation and uniqueness. The detailed research is conducted for the Croatian island -Goli Otok-. This island was used as a political prison camp in the period of 1948-1956. Today this place is completely abandoned, uninhabited and neglected, with the Croatian government having no clear view of how to preserve its memory or plan its future. The design project for -Goli Otok- will take into the account the features this space carries and act as a certain -thread- that will connect the current mental and physical condition asocciated with this island to its alternative futures.
