Some very concrete masterpieces arised from the ashes of Skopje's 1963 earthquake: a post office, a university campus, a railway line on columns, a sky bridged dormitory. Let me guide you around with the story of urban utopia that connects it all. I'm Eva, a city walker and a member of the brutalism appreciation society. I biked my way through Skopje till I got hold of my degree in architecture, so I'm good to show you around. We will have a coffee sitting in the concrete furniture of the dormitory terrace, send postcards from the burnt post office, wave at trains departing above city level and we will not take classes at the university campus. I provide the bikes, you provide the curiosity.
