Where Love takes Place: Prishtina in 53 Buildings

The recently released book “Prishtina in 53 Buildings” draws a multifaceted portrait of Kosovo’s capital city by using architecture as a prism to understand political, cultural and economic processes.

The book comprises essays on fifty-three built objects, written by different authors with different geographical background and different professional perspective and supplemented by pictures by Italian photographer Filippo Romano.

Together they add up to alternative, polyphonic way of recounting of the Prishtina’s history and present. The editors, Donika Luzhnica and Jonas König, present the approach and discuss how emotions and relations with the built fabric shape the perception of cities.

More about the speakers:
