A lecture by Bojan Blazhevski

Date: 16 May 2017, 6 pm

'As a provincial city at the edge of Ottoman Empire, the destiny of Skopje at the beginning of the XX century was everything except modern. Lost in the centuries of different occupants, the architecture in Skopje became independent in the second half of the XX century, in those very moments of glory and actuality given to Modern architecture all around the world. This lecture is all about the Modern architecture in Skopje and how it raised one town into a capital'.
