Course Objectives To provide an in depth understanding of the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary sustainable integrated conservation. To stimulate and enhance intellectual inquiry and research abilities of cultural heritage to ensure that the students become more knowledgeable on heritage protection in the Balkans and elsewhere to be able to act as responsible architects. The course will focus on a specific building type in Sarajevo in an attempt to reclaim deteriorating and neglected historical buildings. This will be achieved through documentation and analysis of the buildings' current condition in order to propose ways of re-purposing them. The students will be given exercises to develop conceptual solutions in various urban settings. Final evaluation will be based on the students ability to analyze, evaluate, and propose a successful design for the assigned building and site.
