Event Title

Architectural reflection in Ferizaj: from Eclecticism to the new vawe of Modernism

Session

Architecture and Spatial Planning

Description

In the last century Ferizaj has undergone a remarkable, not to say radical, transformation, both politically and economically, as well as in cultural and urban terms, with a particular emphasis on architecture. The transformations in the architecture of the city itself are tracks followed during a research like this, to document and discuss these architectural 'transitions' that have occurred under various pressures, which have left traces of architectural expressions in the city. The purpose of the research is to capture and present through architectural evidence the two key moments of turns in Ferizaj: the first one, the transition from architectural orientalism to that, that will be known as 'Europeanization', and the second one, the transition from neoism to the creation of modernity, through which Ferizaj gains a new image of a socialist city. What should not be left unmentioned, are the political influences that have directed not only the economic development of the city but also the architectural coloring, the basis of which will come directly from politics. The exceptional of these two major transformations in the architecture of this city, is made for an extremely short period of time, no more than seven decades (the period traced will be 1920-1990).

Keywords:

history of architecture, architectural styles, Ferizaj, Modernism.

Architectural reflection in Ferizaj: from Eclecticism to the new vawe of Modernism

Pristina, Kosovo

In the last century Ferizaj has undergone a remarkable, not to say radical, transformation, both politically and economically, as well as in cultural and urban terms, with a particular emphasis on architecture. The transformations in the architecture of the city itself are tracks followed during a research like this, to document and discuss these architectural 'transitions' that have occurred under various pressures, which have left traces of architectural expressions in the city. The purpose of the research is to capture and present through architectural evidence the two key moments of turns in Ferizaj: the first one, the transition from architectural orientalism to that, that will be known as 'Europeanization', and the second one, the transition from neoism to the creation of modernity, through which Ferizaj gains a new image of a socialist city.
