Description

Architectural Heritage being one of the most prominent fragment of Kosovo’s heritage consists of different types of buildings, amongst which apart from those deriving from ottoman era there are individual buildings of high importance which prevail as a form of rebellion to Ottoman intrusion and the desire to intertwine with European architecture. These structures appear in the 19th and 20th century and are characterized with different elements which symbolize a glimpse of escape through reflection of European architecture in Kosovo. This heritage has been a subject of destruction over the centuries, with little or small effort put towards its preservation. Nevertheless, after the war period appears to be more promising with CHwB persistence to ensure that this legacy is well protected and documented. Documentation of the buildings remains a significant part of heritage preservation, which unfortunately in Kosovo presents a subject of recent awareness. UBT, being one of the Institutions teaching this subject initiated a project which plans to be a never-ending mission of documentation of Kosovo’s heritage, through which an eminent contribution towards Kosovo’s inventory will be achieved. This project has a double effect, students will gain knowledge and experience as it has been a proven fact that in order to raise professional ethics historical heritage courses should start as early as possible, and on the other hand a direct contribution by UBT to enrichment of Heritage of Kosovo’s inventory.

UBT Inventory of Kosovo’s Architectural Heritage

Durres, Albania

Architectural Heritage being one of the most prominent fragment of Kosovo’s heritage consists of different types of buildings, amongst which apart from those deriving from ottoman era there are individual buildings of high importance which prevail as a form of rebellion to Ottoman intrusion and the desire to intertwine with European architecture.

This heritage has been a subject of destruction over the centuries, with little or small effort put towards its preservation.
