Mostar 2004

The ten-year program of architectural workshops entitled 'Mostar 2004', which was instituted by IRCICA within the framework of its cooperation agreement with the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina, was completed.

The aim of the Mostar 2004 project was to contribute to the restoration and conservation of the architectural heritage of multicultural Bosnia and Herzegovina by establishing an international network of prominent schools and other institutions, convening workshops, producing project proposals and guidelines to assist and support the reconstruction.

The workshop series aim to deploy and coordinate an international academic effort to support future reconstruction and urban preservation activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The broad objectives of the project are: to preserve the thousand-year old architectural heritage of multicultural Bosnia and Herzegovina; to develop an integrated process of urban preservation for Bosnia and Herzegovina through the formation of a practical system of education; and, to establish an international network of prominent schools and cultural organizations for urban preservation to assist and support the reconstruction. For this purpose, the participants draw restoration plans and methodological guidelines for reconstruction, towards the ultimate and symbolic goal of meeting around fully restored Old Bridge of Mostar in the year 2004. The first workshop Mostar 2004, beginning of the series, had taken place from 15 July to 15 August 1994 in Istanbul.
