Abstract

#99FILES proposes to develop a reflection regarding the architecture and the cities of the Balkan countries. The goal is to fill a void that, often, the hegemony of Western architectural culture in the second half of the twentieth century has generated, marginalizing a rich architectural productio that today is at the risk of being canceled. The initiative intends to stimolate a different point of observation of the modern and brutalist heritage of this area, releasing it from the entailed negative connotation from the ideological legacies, while stimulating different interpretative directions of an important string in the architectural thought. These are realities still to be investigated through new visions capable to regonize the role of an important architectural heritage representing the last urban utopia of the twentieth century. By overcoming the ideological barriers, it is possible to re-read other modernities that have characterized the architecture and the city of these countries, and to reassign to what is now perceived as “the unloved heritage”1, a recognizability in the urban physiognomy before beeing canceled or left in the current conditions of degradation.
