Memorial House Mother Teresa in Skopje
Newsletter articel from Macedonia.online from Friday, 30 January 2009:
The Memorial House dedicated to Mother Teresa, the great humanist and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, will be promoted and consecrated in the Skopje centre on Friday.
The consecration of the Memorial Home, which has been erected in the very location of the once Sacred Heart of Jesus Roman Catholic Church, will be serviced by the Bishop of Skopje and Apostolic Exarch in Macedonia, Monsignor Kiro Stojanov.
The construction of the Memorial Home is a project of the Government of the Republic of Macedonia carried out by the Ministry of Culture. The activity is a part of the events intended to mark jubilee 100 years since Mother Teresa’s birth. With her commitment to help people irrespective of their national and religious affiliation, she left an eternal mark in the history of mankind as the symbol of benefaction and humaneness. PM Nikola Gruevski, Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska, and Bishop of Skopje and Apostolic Exarch in Macedonia Monsignor Kiro Stojanov will give addresses. The attendees will be also addressed by Mother Teresa’s spiritual father, Dr. Leo Maasburg who is arriving from Vienna especially for the event. Mother Teresa was born as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu to an Albanian family in 1910 in Skopje. She founded the Missionaries of Charity in India, where she ministered over 40 years. In 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work and, following her death in 1997, was beatified – a step before being canonised as a saint, and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.

Peu commun ce type architectural et c'est sans doute pourquoi elle attire tant l'œil.

Une construction très originale qui reste malgré tout discrète. J'ai eu la chance de prendre un café avec cette grande dame "Mère Térésa" à Calculta. Par le biais de cette photo tu me remets en mémoire un fabuleux voyage.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

interesting photo of this monstruous monument for a great woman in a depressing environment.
I always thought she was born in Albania but there are a lot of Albanians in Macedonia ofcourse.

Das ist ja mal eine interessante Architektur - unglaublich! Aber toll, dass man dieser außergewöhnlichen Frau ein solches "Denkmal" gesetzt hat. Multi-Kulti architektonisch! Ein rundum interessanter Beitrag!
Grüße aus dem warmen und sonnigen Siegerland!

A mixture of very different architectural styles but a Memorial House for Mother Teresa may be
something real special.
I think you have taken the best angle for a picture of it.
When I read the title on the thumbnail I wondered why a memorial house was built in Skopje.
I've always known that Mother Teresa was Albanian but not that she was born and had lived in Macedonia.
Thanks for the interesting note.
Best regards, Paul

This is a nice shot of this interesting architecture. The lighting and colours are fine with nice sharpness and detail. The workers give a nice sense of scale for the scene. Splendid work!
josepmarin (57459) 2009-06-18 11:06
The note is very informative, and complete a good complementary work to this beautiful image.
The architecture is interesting, does not have a proper style, but there is a combination of typologies that has a final result peculiar enough.
Great light and good color, in a well made composition.
rodgerg (55767) 2009-06-18 11:07
A very good presentation of this memorial house. The framing and especially the POv are very well selected. The man on the roght give an intetersting element of life. The lamp in the FG give a plesant graphic effect.

What an unique Memorial House, I do not think it is match with any existing architectures' style, great mixed between old and new design, also mixed between Eastern and Western style, interesting composition, thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the interesting note on this building with the memory for Mother Térésa. Its architecture is really original as well in materials used as in the colors. The light emphasizes the building well. Interesting glance. Well done Achim, thank you.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,

E' veramente incredibile dove possa arrivare l'ingegno umano! Non riesco ad immagginare a cosa si sia potuto ispirare colui che ha pensato e progettato questo edificio, il risultato, decisamente stravagante, non passa certo inosservato, e bene hai fatto tu a mostrarcelo! Collocato nella sua giusta sede esprime bene il concetto e la forza della fede!

The lamposts are framing well the building. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the memorial House to Mother Teresa. The presence of the person has an effect of scale. The luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

I admire your list of photographed countries. You are uploading every time from a different country!
This church is really pretty. it seems like a modern architecture but I feel here some Byzantine elements.
Very interesting and beautiful postcard,

Mother Teresa is close to all our hearts especially Indians..A very unique design building in her memorial, with a multitude of styles merging together in symphonic harmony. A very informative note as well
adramad (34809) 2009-07-03 15:28
