Brutalist, Modernist & Mad: The Yugoslav Architecture of Skopje

Here’s a treat for any concrete lovers.

Ever since my first visit to Skopje, Macedonia, I have been meaning to write an article about the city’s wild, brutalist architecture. I mentioned the trend last time I posted about Macedonia – in my article about the ‘Colourful Revolution‘ that was going down the last time I visited. But after several trips, I now have a fairly extensive photo album of brutalism in Skopje, and the time is drawing near to post an article dedicated solely to the city’s Yugoslav-era architecture.

You can take a look through my collection of images below. You might have seen some of these before, from older galleries, but after a number of visits I’ve now consolidated all my photos into one, comprehensive collection of Skopje brutalism.

Prepare to see a full story on this hitting the front page of the blog sometime soon!
