Historical Park of Medieval Bosnia / FILTER Architecture

FILTER Architecture’s design for the Historical Park of Medieval Bosnia was prompted by the idea of an exhibition space forming an integral point of the large Kamberović Park alongside the River Bosna, in the center 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. More images and a brief description after the break.

The architectural space aspires to create an emotional communication with the user. The entry sequence, disappearing 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.
