We have found this area, a two-mile stretch fronting the west bank of the Miljacka River, to be an extremely popular subject of study because it offers a variety of land use issues and opportunities. During the siege, a small portion of the riverfront served as the front line separating combatants, while at other points it was a place of recreation for the city's inhabitants.
In the last decade a dam was built that provided the people of Sarajevo with their only public swimming area (seen at right) over the past three years.
Our study area extends upstream to the Olympic site at Skinderjia and the former front lines (see Olympic Sites).
Downstream, near the University School of Fine Arts (seen at left), there are coffee houses and restaurants along the river.
There are diverse land uses and many styles of architecture here. Sometimes these styles compete.
We envision a pedestrian promenade unifying disparate parts of
this area. Lighting, paving, shrubbery and balustrade designs
are among the architectural details required.
