Museum architecture is significant in conveying a city's identity since it represents the historical, cultural, and social context in which it is located. It is a combination of interactive duality between the exchange of scenarios, which are situations where existing and potential resources, signs, and symbols are controlled, transferred, and transformed by the identities that individuals use as their agents, and interaction systems, which are defined by a more abstract notion that includes the joining of flows and transformations of resources across time and situation into a synthetic whole as a social system. Examining the architectural aspects of museums in Skopje, this study offered insight into the city's identity, both past and present. Due to multiple political and ideological influences throughout the years, Skopje has been defined as a battleground for the remodeling of the city's identity. My approach to applying a critical analytical technique is also promising since it allows for a comprehensive evaluation of the available material, the identification of potential biases, and the development of well-supported conclusions. Overall, this study contributes to a deeper understanding of Skopje's identity as well as to a larger discussion of the function of museum architecture in the portrayal and formation of identity patterns in the city.
