This shot is taken in Skopje, capital of Republic of Macedonia. Beton brute, or brutalism was a style of architechture widely applied in various public buildings in Skopje in the 1960' and early 1970'. This distinct modern style was suggested by the world known and established architect Kenzo Tange who was appointed a chief urban planer after the severe earthquake of 1963 which destroyed most of Skopje. This emerging style was followed by many domestic architects who implemented in their work such as the campus of St. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje (architect Marko Music 1971), pictured here. The building is in the Muslim part of the city, a symbol who stands for the resurrection of the city as a modern, multicultural and educational center, caught between the tradition and the times to come.
