Skopje, 26 May 2022 (MIA) — The Cultural Information Center from May 26 through June 16 will host a Slavko Brezoski retrospective, organized by the Association of Architects of Macedonia to mark the 100th anniversary of the architect’s birth.

Brezoski was a modernist architect known for his recognizable expression. He belonged to the post-war generation of Macedonian architects and was a member of the “Denes” group, which in the 1950s united young artists and architects committed to the integration of fine arts, architecture and sculpture in affirming national identity.

Brezoski’s most notable works include the Skopje Department Store; the Workers’ Home (which houses the Cultural Information Center); the St. Clement of Ohrid church in Skopje; the Main Commercial Bank in Skopje; the Yugoslavian Embassy in Brazil; and the Shamarice Memorial in Croatia.

Slavko Brezoski (1922-2017) graduated from the Belgrade Faculty of Architecture in 1950 and was immediately hired by the Proektant Design Company for Macedonia, where he worked until 1961.

In the 1960s, he worked for the Pelagonia construction company’s architecture department and the Macedonia architecture firm.

In the 1970s, he joined the Skopje Faculty of Architecture. He taught in the faculty’s Design of Social Buildings department from 1969 to 1987.

Brezoski won many domestic and international competitions. Most of his winning architectural projects were built, which brought him international acclaim.

His awards include the 1963 “October 11” national award; the 1964 “November 13” award of the City of Skopje; and the 1993 “Andreja Damjanov” lifetime achievement award given by the Association of Architects of Macedonia. mr/
