Description

Identity is the distinguishing element that differentiates and forms nature, the environment, and places. In the discipline of architecture and urban planning with identity, is understood the product that makes a place unique or what makes the spirit of the place.

Skopje is one of the city living changes and metamorphosis courses. The city has undergone significant urban transformations through the communism seal, Kenzo Tange’s post-earthquake master plan, and the 21century changing project of “Skopje 2014”. The last one took the city to the extreme of changes passing from modernism into baroque.

This paper aims to explore identity in an architectural and urban context and the changes made in the urban forms. By using observations and specialized literature, this study aims to investigate the recent two major changes in the city of Skopje and the identity problems that the city is still facing. Thus to summarize, the start of the physical changes and social trauma will be defined and its role in the loss of identity and the effect on the urban environment.
