A total of 18 works came in for the Split III competition, from all parts of Yugoslavia, together with a single entry from Glasgow. The work codenamed (njan by Vladimir Braco Mu"ic, Marjan Be#an and Nives Starc was unanimously pronounced the best. These architects introduced the pedestrian street as the dominant element of the project. The network of housing streets and pedestrian paths was placed orthogonally, following the centuriation scheme (Roman square grid) that had been maintained in the Split area for 2000 years, while the two main mixed use commercial and residential streets, the Dalmatian kale (calle), were placed in the line of the cardo (north-south orientation) of the Diocletian Palace.
