Archiecturally, I like Skopje's image as a new city, and I think it's better if they build a modern-looking museum, instead of something so neo-19th-century-Ottoman, but anyway..

What I'd like to know is why were all the comments deleted, including mine, which were in favor of the museum :dunno:

It actually has elements of Byzanthine, not Ottoman architecture. Don't forget that the Ottomans copied everything from the Byzanthines.:)

Quote! ...and not only from them.

I think that the architecture of this new museum is very anachronistic.

That is more appropriate for the "strugle"!

But seems to be a little bit "I wanna be modern"! And I don't really understand the need for that star on the prospect.

Anyway, better than the actual building.

Although I am also in favor of a museum with modern architecture, I do not like the proposal with the star. I would have strongly supported this proposal instead:

These renderings remind me of the Lloyds of London building and the Pompadour center in Paris.

^^True! Eventhough are totally two different architectures.

The second proposal is the oposite of the first one. Extrovert vs introvert.

Interesting choice of name.......for a new museum: D

For your information, there is already a " Museum of the Macedonian Struggle" in Thessaloniki, Province of Macedonia, Greece.

This museum was opened in 1981 in a Neoclassical building that was built in the centre of Thessaloniki at the end of the 19th century and designed by Ernst Ziller.

Um ok this forum must have deleted my post to NickyF...
Anyway what i said was the government is in some past century phase of old looking buildings, that's why they're re-building the old buildings that got ruined in the earth quake and making this one look old, i like it but i also like the original proposal with the crack in the middle and the star on the side, that would have looked really cool, it looks trendy.

I liked the glassy project better as well, however, it's good that a museum is being built at all on this scale :)
