Materializing Modernity - Socialist and Post-socialist Rural Legacy in Contemporary Albania

Project description

Putting Albania on the map of European studies on modernist rural architecture

The EU-funded MaMo project focusses on socialist rural architecture and landscape and its post-socialist legacy in the Albanian countryside. Through a multidisciplinary approach, the project aims to explore the impact of communism on rural architecture and territorial planning in the countryside, the post-socialist transformation and the understanding of Albania's modernism. By producing a novel scientific contribution to the fields of contemporary ethnography and anthropology, modern architecture, landscape planning, history and critical cultural heritage studies, the project intends to build a national and international platform for exchanging opinions. This will, for the first time, place Albania in the framework of European studies on modernist rural architecture and landscape.
