LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum Sarajevo 2014
An 'extraordinary' meeting in a fascinating city

Impressions of 'Istanbul', 'Innsbrück', Socialist Realism and Post-Modern spontaneous settlements - were all to be experienced in close proximity in the urban landscape of Sarajevo

Landscape issues on Trebevic Mountain being explained to the Sarajevo Landscape Forum participants
And above them all rise the slopes of Trebević Mountain, a place of deep meanings and memories for the people of the city: both the main site of the 1984 Winter Olympics as well as being a central setting for the Siege of Sarajevo from 1992-1995.

Keynote presentations from an excellent team of local specialists and international speakers, combined with field visits and workshop sessions provided the context for the investigation this uniquely complex landscape by the international group of LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum participants - an ‘extraordinary’ Landscape Forum in more ways than one.

The historic phases of the development of this cosmopolitan city, from its Ottoman beginnings, through its time as an Austro-Hungarian provincial capital to its role in former Yugoslavia and beyond follow one another in an historic and geographical sequence along the Miljacka River, while the traditional residential ‘Mahalas’ together with newer unregulated settlements perch, often precariously, on the surrounding hills, eating into the wider wooded landscape setting.

This was the context for the work of the four thematic groups which looked at the local landscape issues and will continue to do so in a virtual collaboration over the coming months...

Special thanks are due to the many colleagues in Sarajevo whose 'can do' approach made it possible to organise a really excellent Forum with little more than a few weeks notice.
