the sad thing is that after the war the building was almost undamaged in the external structure, which could be kept and restored

Some of the replacements are not that bad, and others are quite an improvement. By mid 18th Century, architecture had become the domain of excessive clutter (rococo-esque inspired), too many details on façades, too many information conveyed in an era where speed by which most people contemplate buildings was vastly improved (trams/streetcars, automobiles).

So it is good riddance to see new buildings with only 5-10% of the contours/details of those they replaced. It creates monumentality and it fits the fast pace of 21st Century.

Sorry, but I don't think it's a good topic to show rebuilding of Sarajevo. This buildings are the same as in the past, olny rebuilded, not replacement...
