It is a nice collection, I like the choices the photographer made; should've included an Orthodox church for Yugoboy, though. As for it being deserted - what can you expect - Sarajevo isn't Chicago. *cmok*Boycie said:Damn, I know that Bosnians are 'slow starters' but downtown seems very deserted in those early hours, even for the local standards. A very nice collection btw.
I think they should do what was proposed a few years ago; it was before I was involved here, I would've noted the name if I'd know I'd bring it up. But this architect had a few designs posted in the paper. It was basically an enormously wide bridge across the Miljacka. I'd say at least 10-15 normal car lanes wide. But it wasn't a bridge for cars, it had a fountain on it, chairs, news stands, etc. It was like a square right above the river where Obala Kulina Bana passes Strosmajerova. Looked beautiful to me.Ledeni said:I wish instead of demolishing Sarajka and building some giant bank they'd scale the bank back and create a nice baroque central city square.. with a statue of Gazi Husrev-beg or Husein kapetan or someone.
KhApZ! said:Wow, Sarajevo looks really dense. What is that big, grey building with no pain or glass =S, was it a casulty of the war? It stands out in that pic...
ĐaMila said:^ God I hope they make it glass. People don't realize how massive this building is. I don't know how tall it is, or what it's measurements are...but whether it's an effect of the shape, or whatever the reasons behind it...that building is just massive. A glass fascade on that would be gorgeous! But then the lower parts, the current parliament building, wouldn't match, so they'd have to rebuild that as well?
Knowing the Bosnian government, instead of re-doing something that's already been repaired, they'll just repair the building's old fascade completely. But we'll see.
