RESOURCES: The Future as a Project: Doxiadis in Skopje

The Future as a Project: Doxiadis in Skopje brings into the spotlight the story of Skopje’s reconstruction after the 1963 earthquake and its modern heritage. It presents Constantinos A. Doxiadis’ work in Skopje, which includes a detailed survey of the affected areas, reports, housing studies, thoughts and diagrams for a new master plan, and his collaboration with other planners (Christos – Georgios Kritikos, Ines Tolic, Kostas Tsiambaos). Furthermore, it features the work of Kenzo Tange for Skopje’s city centre and showcases a series of modernist buildings authored by leading Yugoslavian architects, that still stand in the city today (Vlatko P. Korobar, Ana Ivanovska – Deskova, Vladimir Deskov, Jovan Ivanovski, Zoran Petrovski). It positions the reconstruction within the context of Yugoslavian modernism (Maroje Mrduljas). Finally, it presents some of the latest revivalist interventions in the city of Skopje and the challenges they have presented for architects and citizens alike (Kalliopi Amygdalou). This edited volume was published to accompany an exhibition of the same title (Benaki Museum, 20/12/2018 – 17/2/2019), which was co-organised by the Hellenic Institute of Architecture, the Museum of the City of Skopje and the Benaki Museum, with the support of ‘Athens 2018- World Book Capital’ and the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports.
The full pdf edition of the book is available through the webpage of the Hellenic Institute of Architecture.
