4th International Conference the Importance of place – Sarajevo 2017


It is a pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the organising committee of the 4th Importance of place taking place in Sarajevo from the 20th to 23th October 2017!

The importance of retaining the built cultural heritage cannot be overstated. Rapid development and the inappropriate conservation techniques are threatening many built cultural heritage unique sites in different parts of the world.

Our main aim is to recover the traditional «architectural» language by integrating it within the framework of contemporary education. The architect’s role encompasses appreciating the past, understanding the present, and anticipating and preparing for the future.

This conference brings together contributions from scientists, architects, engineers and restoration experts from all over the world dealing with different aspects of heritage buildings.
