Industry in a city - dynamic facade

architecture, competitions


Skopje, North Macedonia




Usje is an old, well-known factory for cement production in the city of Skopje. Its surrounding has experienced a drastic growth and transformation into a dense urban residential area making the factory undesirable for the locals.
The new facade proposal aims to hide the current surface of the silos with the help of a dynamic metal facade. The pattern that covers the silos is inspired by the mountains hidden behind the factory.
The wind makes the metal forms tremble, offering a calming effect, and becoming a landmark of the place.
