The architecture of the 60s and 70s is evidence of a city that was reconstructed in very little time. After an earthquake in July 1963, about 80% of the city was reduced to rubble. The reconstruction was supposed to correspond to the ideal image of a socialist city. Exposed concrete dominated throughout the city. Many buildings, such as Gjorgji Konstantinovski's student house, are still in use, but are in rather poor condition.
