WELCOME TO

THE

SKOPJE

PROJECT

The project for reconstruction of the city of Skopje after the devastating earthquake in 1963 represented the occasion for world architects and urban planners to accomplish a truly world project, the universal project promoting the universal values of the humanity achieved through the tools and instruments of architecture and international collaboration. What if the reconstruction of Skopje happened today? What if, in the aftermath of the catastrophic event, the same unilateral call to solidarity occurred and the entire world came together in support of the city? What if leadership insisted on using this catastrophe as an opportunity to find new models for economic, infrastructural, political, and urban reconstruction? If that happened, what would architects, planners, policy makers, economists, sociologists, and other committed participants to reconstruction do?
