This book reconstructs the evolution of the content and format of the Architecture Day during the first ten years of the festival.
The Days of Architecture (DA) have over the course of ten years gone from a student project to one of the most significant events for contemporary architecture in Bosnia and Herzegovina, hosting some of the world's greatest names in the contemporary architectural scene, thus creating a recognizable spot on the map of cultural events in the region.
"Can we produce architecture today that is architecture of events, architecture of situations, and that no longer relies on a conventional perception of space? " - Bernard Khoury at the Architecture Days in Sarajevo
The enthusiasm of a generation of architecture students played a decisive role in ten years of DA. The enormous amount of energy invested and intensive joint work are the main reasons why DA took place year after year. This book represents a kind of overview of one decade of successful action.
In the book you will read about the most interesting projects, both from participants of the festival as well as the team of Days of Architecture, in the form of a collage of authorial texts, photographs, diagrams and drawings, which is a selection from the contents of numerous lectures, exhibitions and workshops from all editions of DA.
According to one of the world's most respected critics of contemporary architecture, Hans Ibelings, "The actual number of days of the Days of Architecture is a fraction of the 3650 days of the title, but the intention is to let every day be a Day of Architecture, and to give the culture of architecture a ubiquitous presence." - From the Foreword.
