Post office Skopje

Thanks for the photos from Skopje!
Unfortunately the main hall of the post office in Skopje burnt down. I suppose it has to burn, because the actual government doesn't like the architecture from the 1960s and 70s (see all these terrible Skopje 2014 projects) and the site is quite good and central.

Kenzo Tange and Skopje

There are 3 main elements in the design from Kenzo Tange you can find in Skopje: The city gate, the city wall and the connecting link. From the gate and the link you can see the railway station (by Kenzo Tange himself) and the National Bank, from the wall are about 1/3 realized and the ideas of the link you can find in the City Shopping Center. See photos here: http://www.ostarchitektur.com/Macedo...ja-Skopje.html

It's going to be renewed, as it is, thankfully...

This is an older photo, (August 2013), where you can see the reconstruction of the roof. In the fire the roof was damaged, as well the murals of a very important Macedonian artist.

I wish they would renovate the entire building. Those AC units are terrible.

I actually don't hate the above style of Brutalism - it has symmetry and the window lines produce a sense of harmony across the base and facade. And, it's got a base, meaning it's tried a bit to fit into the surrounding context. It's almost like modernism / brutalism.

That's good looking. Brazil has some really nice architecture.
