Historical Park of Medieval Bosnia in Zenica, Herzegovina by FILTER Architecture designed using SketchUP

August 23rd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FILTER Architecture

The competition name is „Historic Park of Medieval Bosnia and Herzegovina (Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina). The intention of this competition was to create a thematic park, having a medieval Bosnian history as a subject. It was left to the competitors to decide how to organize the given site and to choose the approach. Only the set of most important historic artifacts, which had to be presented at place, was given as limiting factor. The chosen site was a green area in the city center, well provided with the pedestrian paths. Our design result was a museum pavilion, with a given name timespace.

Clay model

The design was prompted by the idea of an exibition space forming an integral point of the large Kamberovic Park alongside the River Bosna, in the centre of the town of Zenica. The concept was based on a deterministic approach to history – as a series of causes and consequences, while avoiding falling into a trap of a pathos-ridden and artificial representation of a part of our national history. The architectural space aspires to create an emotional communication with the user. The entry sequence – dissapearing underground as a one-way movement between walls lined with mirrors and then returning to the beginning – at the same point but on a different level, creates a sense of relative space and reveals the time as the content.
