MARC2011_4The representative of Expeditio, Aleksandra Kapetanovic, attended the 4th International Course on the Conservation of Modern Architecture (MARC 2011) – “Metamorphosis – Understanding and Managing Changes” held in Helsinki, Finland, from 28 May until 23 June 2011.

The 4th International Course on the Conservation of Modern Architecture (MARC 2011) was jointly organised by the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and Alvar Aalto Academy from Finland.

The course MARC 2011 was attended by 24 representatives from around the world, whereas the representative of Expeditio was the sole representative from the South-Eastern Europe.

The participation of the Expedition representative in the MARC 2011 course was enabled owing to the donation granted by ICCROM, and the assistance provided by the Ministry of Culture of Montenegro and Bureau for Scientific, Educational, Cultural and Technical Cooperation.

The treatment of modern architecture as an important segment of cultural heritage has not yet been satisfactory in Montenegro. Unfortunately, there are still no officially protected cultural  heritage from this period. There are very few examples of good restoration, which are more the result of investors’ awareness than of a systematic approach. Therefore, modern architecture and construction heritage from the recent past of Montenegro will have to be identified and legally protected in the foreseeable future, and the guidelines on their conservation and re-utilisation will have to be adopted. In addition, Montenegro presently lacks expertise in this field since protection and conservation of modern architecture is specific compared to protection of traditional architecture. We believe that the participation of the Expeditio representative in the MARC 2011 course will contribute to the improvement of treatment of this segment of cultural heritage of Montenegro.


EXPEDITIO is a non-governmental organization whose mission is to encourage sustainable spatial development in Montenegro and SEE region through activity in the fields of sustainable architecture, cultural heritage, urban planning and through projects that encourage overall development of the civil society. Expeditio was established in 1997.
