The Town Hall, Sarajevo is a monument of outstanding significance and historical resonance, prominently located on the bank of the Miljacka River on the border of the commercial and business district of the city. Built in 1894, it is the largest and most representative building of the AustroHungarian period in Sarajevo as well as the most beautiful and important example of the pseudoMoorish style in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The building served as Town Hall until 1949 when it became the National and University Library, a function it fulfilled until it was gutted during the war in 1992. The building has been stabilised and reconstruction is now intended with a view to restoring it to public use as a library and a museum of reconstruction, with space for public events. The project is being led by the City administration with the support of the municipality and numerous national and international partners. The rehabilitation of this symbol of the city will restore beneficial public use, create jobs and encourage tourism, playing a crucial role in the preservation and celebration of city and national identity.

Structure of the Commission The Commission to Preserve National Monuments is an institution of the State of Bosnia and Herzegovina established pursuant to Annex 8 of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Decision of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the Commission to Preserve National Monuments (Official Gazette of BiH Nos. 1/02 and 10/02). The Commission is headquartered in Sarajevo, Obala Kulina bana 1 (the Labour Union building). The work of the Commission is financed from the budget of the institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

4.

Main activities of the Commission Jurisdiction of the Commission Pursuant to its authority as stipulated by Annex 8 of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in BiH, the Commission issues decisions designating movable and immovable property as National Monuments, applying the Criteria on the Designation of National Monuments (Official Gazette of BiH No. 33/02). The procedure for designating a given property as a National Monument is initiated by a petition or motion, which may be filed by any interested natural or legal person. The Commission has drawn up standard petition forms by property type and has lodged them with all the municipalities of BiH, the institutions dealing with the protection of the cultural and

Feasibility Study IRPP/SAAH 5 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

historical heritage, religious communities and other institutions. The Commission also issues decisions on designation as a National Monument in the absence of specific application for each of the individual properties on the Provisional List of National Monuments of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Official Gazette of BiH No. 33/02). The Commission's decisions are final, and are enforced pursuant to the law on the Enforcement of Decisions of the Commission to Preserve National Monuments (Official Gazette of FBiH Nos. 2/02 and 27/02, and Official Gazette of RS No. 9/02), which accords National Monuments the highest degree of protection. Responsibility for the enforcement of the Commission's decisions lies with the Entity governments and the ministries responsible for regional planning. In addition to issuing decisions designating National Monuments, the Commission monitors and considers the state of affairs and activities relating to National Monuments endangered by illegal construction, inexpert reconstruction, and lack of maintenance or other forms of destruction. In specific cases, the Commission notifies the relevant Entity or other authorities (governments, the appropriate ministries, institutes for the protection of monuments, municipal authorities, etc.) that a monument is endangered, and proposes measures for its protection in accordance with the law, including filing criminal charges with the relevant authorities pursuant to the provisions of the Criminal Proceedings Law. The Law on the Implementation of Decisions of the Commission to Preserve National Monuments lays down the responsibilities of, and relationships between, the departments, organisations or institutes responsible for heritage management. Everyone, in particular the competent authorities of the Entities, cantons, and urban and municipal authorities, must refrain from any action that might endanger the national monument or jeopardise its protection and reconstruction. Entity ministries are responsible for spatial planning issue permits for the protection, display and reconstruction of national monuments. The institutions responsible for the protection of the heritage provide expertise on reconstruction projects and expert supervision of reconstruction work. The Entity governments, regional planning ministry, heritage protection institutes and municipal authorities in charge of urban planning and land registry matters, are notified of the Commissions decisions in order to carry out the measures stipulated, and the competent municipal court is notified for the purposes of registration in the Land Register. Pursuant to the Decision of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Commission is also authorised to perform activities of international co-operation in the field of culturalhistorical heritage protection. 5. List of the management board Members of the Commission Pursuant to Annex 8 of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in BiH and the Decision on the Commission, at its 119th session (21 December 2001), the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina issued a decision appointing the following persons as members of the Commission: Prof Dr Zeynep Ahunbay (architecture expert); Amra Hadimuhamedovi (MSc architecture); Prof Dr Dubravko Lovrenovi (historian); Prof Dr Ljiljana evo (art historian) and Tina Wik (architect). Internal organisation of the Commission The professional and administrative affairs of the Commission are performed by the Commission's Secretariat, which is staffed by qualified personnel in the fields of

___________________________________________________________________________

Feasibility Study IRPP/SAAH 6 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

archaeological heritage, architectural heritage, townscape heritage and cultural landscapes, movable heritage items, legal affairs, financial affairs and technical co-ordination, respectively. The work of the Secretariat is managed and organised by an executive official. All posts are filled by selection from applicants responding to a public advertisement. 6. Applicability of the project to the EU standards and norms Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan/Survey of the Architectural and Archaeological Heritage (IRPP/SAAH) The Council of Europe, working in association with the European Commission, has drawn up a Regional Cultural and Natural Heritage Programme for South-Eastern Europe. The Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan/Survey of the Architectural and Archaeological Heritage (IRPP/SAAH) is one of three components of the Regional Programme. Work began on the project in 2003. The Regional Programme includes Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia Kosovo/UNMIK, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The Regional Cultural and Natural Heritage Programme is regarded as contributing to the stability, peace-keeping and development of democratic society in the South-Eastern European countries. The adoption and application of the results of the Regional Cultural and Natural Heritage Programme brings the countries of South-Eastern Europe closer to membership of the European Union. Bosnia and Herzegovina is represented by the Commission to Preserve National Monuments, which co-ordinates and manages the activities involved in implementing the programme. The Council of Europe has appointed Commission member, Amra Hadimuhamedovi, as Programme Co-ordinator for Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Mirela Mulali Handan, the Commission's Executive Officer, as Project Co-ordinator for this project. The aim of the Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan is to bring heritage protection and conservation in the countries concerned closer to the norms and standards applicable in European Union countries. The European Cultural Convention makes recommendations for the development of mechanisms for cultural co-operation and respect for cultural diversity, on which this project is based. The provision of adequate mechanisms for cultural heritage protection in the countries of South-Eastern Europe is also a contribution to the preservation of the European heritage and identity. The Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan consists of four stages: 1) national assessment of the state of the architectural and archaeological heritage; 2) Prioritised Intervention List; 3) Preliminary Technical Assessments, and 4) Feasibility Studies. On the basis of its operations to date, documentation and inventory of the heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Commission to Preserve National Monuments has drawn up an assessment of the state of the architectural and archaeological heritage and a Prioritised Intervention List, with the technical co-operation and professional assistance of Council of Europe experts. In the course of these activities, the preliminary stages were submitted to the ministries responsible for regional planning and culture in the Entities and Brko District and the heritage protection institutions for completion and data collation. The assessment offers a brief overview of the state of the heritage in BiH from the point of view of physical and legal protection, management, education, the extent of heritage documentation and the institutional framework for protection. 1. The Prioritised Intervention List (PIL) for BiH includes 19 national monuments, among which are historic buildings, groups of buildings and sites, which are regarded as properties of particular importance to European heritage, and as priorities requiring urgent protection measures.

Feasibility Study IRPP/SAAH 7 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Town Hall in Sarajevo is included on the Priority Intervention List. The Commission used the following criteria for national monuments to be included on the PIL: - the monument is a rare or unique example of a certain type or style; - the monument is of outstanding value; - the monument is of major importance for the reconstruction of civic trust and the implementation of the peace accord in Bosnia and Herzegovina; - threats caused by human or natural factors mean that the monument is at risk of losing its most important features or of being lost altogether. 2. Preliminary Technical Assessments (PTAs) have been carried out for all national monuments on the PIL by local experts from the Commission and other institutions in charge of heritage protection and in co-operation with Council of Europe experts. 3. Feasibility Studies (FS) for the properties on the Prioritised Intervention List should facilitate foreign investment and research opportunities for the development of private-public sector partnerships. The Council of Europe has published the results of the completed stages of the project for each of the participating countries Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan / Survey of the Architectural and Archaeological Heritage; a Preliminary Technical Assessment for each monument on the PIL and a Feasibility Study for selected monuments from the PIL. The Presidency of BiH adopted the results to date of the Integrated Rehabilitation Project Plan. It recommended that the Council of Ministers of BiH provide the conditions for integrating the Project into sustainable development strategies and programmes, and adopt a budget for the implementation of the Project. 7.

II 1. CONTEXT OF THE PROJECT Objectives 1.1 Reconstruction of the Town Hall in Sarajevo has multiple meaning: - reconstruction and revitalisation of an important monument in the region, the most important example of the pseudo-Moorish style in Bosnia and Herzegovina; - it will ensure the continuity of use and reconstruction of the Town Hall as the original seat of the City Administration; - it will contribute to the preservation of the cultural memory and spirit of the city as part of the historical core of Sarajevo. 1.2 This project will stop further dilapidation that may cause permanent loss of some parts of the building and loss of important decorations on the faade of the building. 1.3 The reconstruction of this building will contribute to raising awareness about cultural heritage and the importance of the cultural and historical heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. 1.4 The revitalisation of the Town Hall, as part of the historical core of the City of Sarajevo, contributes to cultural events and improving tourism in the region.

1.5 The project contributes to strengthening capacities and institutions of Bosnia and Herzegovina through the reconstruction of an administrative and public building within the urban centre of the city as the first building of the Sarajevo Town Hall. 2. Regional/local socio-economic context From its origins the Town Hall, as part of the city, represents the memory of the place and documents a period of time. This building is a symbol of the city and has a symbolic meaning that was created after its destruction and the attempt to destroy the cultural identity of the city, the state and its people. The reconstruction of the Town Hall is a symbol of resistance to destruction and primitivism. The social significance of the building lies in the fact that a number of premises will be returned to the National and University Library for public use, including the use of the library and the area planned for hosting various events, visits to the museum of reconstruction, organisation of gatherings and presentations. The economic potential lies in the development of tourism in different segments, bearing in mind the importance and function of the Town Hall and its historical surroundings. Group or individual tourist visits to the Town Hall building can be organised, as well as the sale of appropriate souvenirs and books about its history, destruction and reconstruction. This type of contribution may form additional funds for necessary maintenance works and presentation of the cultural and historical heritage of the City of Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The existing capacities of the Old Town Municipality offer a possibility for tourism development directed at various marketing segments: 1. Cultural-historical heritage of the Old Town Municipality, primarily the Town Hall and its centre, Baarija, create significant conditions for the development of cultural tourism. 2. Various, tourism related activities, as in the organisation of the festival Baarijske noi, concerts organised on the square in front of the Town Hall. 3. Additional activities that my be carried out during the tourist season in relation to the rich history of the city, performances, gatherings, and presentations that point out the Town Hall building and its surrounding. With regard to the current state of development of the municipality and a lack of significant plans (development strategy of the municipality) for analysing economic potentials and economic profit generation systems, tourism should be viewed as a source of income for companies, entrepreneurs and the municipality, if we consider the development of certain tourist sectors. In that sense, an increase in the number of tourist visits will contribute to the increase of income and more work for hotels, museums, stores and other facilities located in the neighbourhood. The activities of the accompanying businesses, such as local stores, restaurants, souvenir shops and shops that sell other domestic products, will also increase. 3. Sectorial context The architectural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina was systematically destroyed during the 1992-95 war, contrary to the provisions of international law and those of the Criminal Codes applicable in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the countries that came into being following the dissolution of Yugoslavia. According to the still incomplete data that the Institute for the Protection of the Cultural, Historical and Natural Heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina had gathered by November 1995, 2 771 architectural heritage properties had been demolished or damaged: 713 of them had been totally destroyed and 554 had been gutted by fire and were unusable. This data is partly based on on-site inspections, partly on reports from individual organisations, religious communities and so on. Be that as it may, the numbers in the report, even though incomplete, indicate the almost total state of devastation of Bosnia and Herzegovinas heritage. Classified chronologically and stylistically, the worst destruction was of properties from the Ottoman period, (15th to 19th centuries), followed by those of the Austro-Hungarian period.

16 buildings of national importance, falling within the first protection category, (categorisation of the Regional Plan of Bosnia and Herzegovina until 2002), which date back to the AustroHungarian period, were destroyed. The Town Hall and National Library in Sarajevo and four other monuments from that period (the Town Hall in Bosanski Novi, Post Office building in Sarajevo, and the Baths and the Neretva Hotel in Mostar). Heritage managements main strength lies in the institutional legislative framework for heritage protection, at state level. The Dayton Peace Agreement defines, in separate annexes, the obligations at the different administrative levels (state level: the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina; and the Entity levels: the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and the District of Brko). Annex 8 relates to the heritage and the importance of its reconstruction for the implementation of a stable peace. This is one of the annexes that establishes refugees right to return and lays down conditions to ensure security in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Commission to Preserve National Monuments is an institution of the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina, set up in accordance with Annex 8 of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Decision of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina on the Commission to Preserve National Monuments (BiH Official Gazette Nos. 1/02 and 10/02). The Commissions decisions are final and are enforced in accordance with the Law on the Enforcement of Decisions of the Commission to Preserve National Monuments, which has been adopted by the Entities (Republika Srpska, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the District of Brko and the local and regional authorities defined in an annex) and provides national monuments with the highest degree of protection. 4. Statutory protection The Commission to Preserve National Monuments adopted a decision to designate the Historical Building Town Hall in Sarajevo as a national monument of Bosnia and Herzegovina at its 27th session, held from 4 to 10 July 2006. To ensure the ongoing protection of the National Monument, the following protection measures are defined: The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is responsible for ensuring the legal, scientific, technical, administrative and financial measures necessary to protect, conserve, restore, and the national monument. To ensure the ongoing protection of the national monument the following measures are hereby stipulated: Only conservation and restoration works are permitted, as well as structural and construction repair works, works on the reconstruction of the missing parts and the works on the presentation of the national monument, with the approval of the Federation ministry responsible for physical planning and expert supervision of the responsible heritage protection authority at the level of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina Before carrying out works on the building, a technical review of previously implemented works needs to be organised: Stabilisation of the structural system of masonry constructions Reconstruction of the roof, including a lightning conductor installation Repair of the steel dome and false ceiling, including reconstruction of the glass cover of the dome Reconstruction works in the assembly hall The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina is responsible for ensuring the preparation of appropriate project documentation, based on research works conducted, which will include: Structural repair and stabilisation of basement walls and pillars, domes, the floor in the ground floor, support of decorations on the roof gable, inner stairs and external stone stairs

Executive summary Being under Turkish rule at the end of the 19th century, Sarajevo got its first municipal administration Beledija and Assembly of the City Administration, as a result of a big administrative reform in Turkey. In 1789, at the time of establishing the Austro-Hungarian rule in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the City Administration was formed. The need for a modern town hall arose within the planned development of the national capital. Mustajbeg Fadilpai, the then mayor of Sarajevo underlined that need. Around 1890, attempts were made to implement the programme for the new town hall on some location where an outstanding building could be built. The approval was issued for the location on the right bank of the Miljacka River, in the eastern part of downtown Sarajevo.

The architect Karlo Karlo Parik (1857-1942) designed the building of Beledija (detention) which marked the beginning of the development of the construction block towards the west. At the same time he designed the Town Hall building located to the east of the Beledija (ideally matching axes of the entry to the Beledija and the western entry to the Town Hall). The location determined the basic layout of the Town Hall an equilateral triangle. The improvement of the quay along the Miljacka River was quite certain at that time, so that Parik positioned the main faade of the Town Hall, which is marked by elements of neo-Moorish architecture, to face the river. The preliminary design was completed in 1891 and offered to Minister B. Kallay, who (according to the historian Hamdija Kreevljakovi) objected to the project. Since the designer did not accept the objections of the Austro-Hungarian Minister Kallay, Alexander Wittek was charged with preparing a new project, on which he worked in 1892 and 1893. Since he made the project in the pseudo-Moorsih style, he went to Cairo on two occasions to study buildings built in that style. His models were the mosque and madrasah of Hasan II in Cairo. As A. Wittek fell ill and died in 1894, iril M. Ivekovi continued to work on the project. It was completed in 1894, with minor alterations made to Witteks design. The selection of decoration elements may be Witteks greatest contribution to the construction of the building, which, in terms of space and composition, was defined in Pariks project and worked out in detail by . M. Ivekovi. The culmination of its representative quality was achieved by richly decorated elements of the Islamic architecture of North Africa and Spain. 3. Summary description of the building/site The original Town Hall building was designed and executed as a massive structural system, using traditional materials (stone, brick and wood) and steel supports. The steel dome above the assembly hall was made of the same materials. A glazed covering and false ceiling complete the interior, lighting and decoration of the dome. The basement level is set on stone foundations, with the external parapet cladding made of stone. The ceiling structure above the basement is made of brick vaults. The walls of all levels, except the basement, are made of brick 75.60 and 45 cm thick. The ceiling structures in the peripheral tracts are built as wooden structures with wooden floors, and at the central entrance they are built with brick domes. The structure of the assembly hall is made of stone pillars and stone load-bearing arches, with brick domes stretching over two storeys and connecting a monumental stone staircase. The layout of the building is an almost symmetrical equilateral triangle, with the southern and north-eastern faade being 56 metres long and the north-western faade 52 metres long. The building has a basement, ground floor, mezzanine and two upper floors. There are angle towers in the form of prisms at the corners of the triangle. There are projecting bays on all sides of the building, with the bay on the southern, main faade being particularly pronounced and very representative. It is made of an access staircase with a porch, above which there is a loggia. From the domed porch one enters a quadrangular area with nine domed fields, at a height of two floors. This area leads to the central, spacious hexagonal hall, structurally developed from the triangular base. This is the most valuable space in the building with the height of the entire building and a glazed dome on the top. A three-pronged staircase leads from the assembly hall to the gallery that stands on the pillars with decoratively executed capitals and arches. From the gallery one enters the main, most outstanding premises of the Town Hall, such as the big hall, two smaller halls, and a smaller meeting hall located at the opposite side. All the halls are at a height of two floors, other premises are developed through four floors above the basement. The style of the building is a mixture of historicism of the pseudo-Moorish origin. The style models are the so-called Mezoarabic and Moorish art of Spain and North Africa. The distinctive quality of the building is, to a large extent, made of the stylistic features of relief and painted decoration. In sculptural terms, the painted elements of the interior and exterior, as

well as the wall decorations are designed in the spirit of historicism, i.e. in the pseudo-Moorish style, and they represent excellent realisations of that style in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The decoration of the buildings faade shows the style elements taken from the Mameluk period in Cairo (1250-1517). These elements are seen in the stylisation of horseshoe arches, transennas, on twisted half-pillars of the angle towers, on the finishing roof cornice and elsewhere. Some elements of the artistic arrangement of relief and painted decoration were taken from the area of North Africa, from the Fatimid period. That is, above all, the polichromy of the faade with the alternating red and yellow stripes, the use of stalactite relief, decoration using relief ceramics, etc. Partially taken over from the Fatimid period are the designs of balconies, the use of multicoloured stained glass windows, and the way of painting flat ceilings. Inspired by the Hispanic-Arabic mudejar style, relief and painted decorations were executed in the interior, with the most magnificent portions in the domed parts of the assembly hall, where there are stalactite and honey-combed fields, decorated with polychromatic ornaments and gilding. Reflections of this style are also observable on the external faade. The fanciful arabesque-like and Moorish ornaments are painted on the domed ceilings and arcades in the halls of the first floor, the ceilings of the loggia on the first floor, the wall surfaces above the landing of the main staircase, and on the flat ceilings of the most outstanding halls of the Town Hall building. Below the glazed ceiling of the dome, above the central hall, there is a stained glass window made of arabesque-like star-shaped motifs, connected in the so-called endless ornamentation, typical of the spacious areas in the Islamic art. There is another stained glass window standing above the landing of the main staircase, which is made of multicoloured glass of intensive colour and geometric forms of arabesque motifs, which fill the distyle and rosette above it. 4. Summary historic development of the building/site The Town Hall building was built on a site where two hans and one private house had been situated. The hans had been pulled down, and the owner of the private house requested that the house be transferred for a purse of gold coins, brick by brick, onto the other bank of the Miljacka River, at the opposite side of the Town Hall building. This was done as he requested, and the house dubbed Inat kua exists to the present day. The construction began in 1892 (started by architect Wittek) and ended in 1894. The building was inaugurated on 20 April 1896, when Baron Ivan Apel formally handed over the building to the Town Administration (with the District Court being housed in one part of it together with the Bosnian and Herzegovinian Parliament). The extension of the tramline along the bank to the new Town Hall building depended on the completion of the quay improvement works. In 1897 this line was extended all the way to the eherehaja's Bridge. The Town Hall building was used by the Town Administration until 1949 (the period of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia), when it was relinquished to the National and University Library. The building had this cultural function until 1992, when it was destroyed.

Significance In the history of western European cities, the existence of a town/city hall meant a higher level of political self-governance. The Town Hall of Sarajevo was built on the model of and with all the elements used for the construction of buildings of that kind in western European architecture and contains the usual architectural elements: Ground floor, loggia for the courtroom; First floor formal hall and meeting rooms, balcony or projecting loggia; Tower, which was placed on the crown of the central dome of the Sarajevo Town Hall building.

The Town Hall is the spatially largest and most impressive building from the Austro-Hungarian time in Sarajevo. It is also the most beautiful and most important example of the pseudoMoorish style in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The architecture of eclecticism in Bosnia and Herzegovina did not produce original designs vis--vis the architecture of the central European cities, but a completely new topic. That is the so-called oriental style, the Moorish architecture or pseudo-oriental expression, in the way a European architect of that time understood and applied it (in the romantic and national spirit). Architects believed that they were creating a local Bosnian style and in that spirit they represented Bosnia at the European exhibitions. That is the transposition of the Islamic decoration and architecture, and its copying. Alexander Witter, the architect who worked on the project and building of the Town Hall went to Cairo on two occasions to learn more about buildings constructed in this style, he took the mosque and madrasah of Hasan II in Cairo as his models. Unlike the majority of public buildings in Sarajevo, which project a picture of the pseudoMoorish style mostly as an art and decoration repertory developed on faades, the building of the Town Hall is characterised by the expression of that style, seen through the decoration, spatial and even structural plan too. The Mosque was the most monumental building of Ottoman architecture in Bosnia. It was a part of the ensemble of buildings with different activities pursued in it praying, studying, humanitarian aid, and with the accompanying graveyard. The access to the central area the interior of the mosque is made through the porch and entryway to the overall complex, i.e. area framed by the envelope of the building, which creates the magnificent effect. The same idea is developed within the project of the Town Hall building. By entering the porch and going through the door, we come to the assembly hall the framed space of the building, richly decorated, of vertical proportion. The space, that is not big, is seen as monumental. This type of space, which was a symbol of the most monumental building the domed mosque, has always been something that a Bosnian has been familiar with. It is a sufficient reason to give to the building, meant to be the seat of the town government, the spatial qualities that the inhabitants will view as their own property. Over the entire century of its existence, the building was viewed in that way. Although the Town Hall building with its appearance and dimensions interrupted the picture of the fragmented construction style typical of the downtown of the Ottoman time, and heralded the future changes in the complete image of the town, the application of the pseudoMoorish style on the building marked the tendency for compliance with the tradition and culture. The Town Hall as the National and University Library had a great value for the entire region. Since its early days the Town Hall building was a symbol of the city. Newspapers and magazines carried texts and photographs of it. Its appearance and close surroundings were an interesting motif to photograph and immortalise the moments of the newly installed street lighting, new electric tram, first automobiles in the town, which were pictured in front of the Town Hall, with good reason, and the visit of Emperor Franz Joseph to the town administration. The Town Hall housed the bust of Emperor Franz Joseph made by Frange Mihanovi, which was placed in it in l908. That was the year of the annexation, when Bosnia and Herzegovina became an equal member of the community of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Its function gradually began to focus on the spiritual aspirations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, so that the administration became slowly replaced by culture, science and art. In any case, this

28 November 2007

Feasibility Study IRPP/SAAH 16 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

building is a monument of spirituality of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which has a reason to survive only if it is given its previous function. The architectural and artistic value of the building is its distinctiveness, one of the most successful and most beautiful results of the application of the pseudo-Moorish style on a public building in Bosnia and Herzegovina at the time of eclecticism. The symbolic meaning of the Town Hall became even more pronounced after the destruction, which was an attempt to destroy the cultural identity of the state and its people. Its reconstruction is a symbol of the resistance to the powers of destruction. 6. Vulnerability The condition of the monuments is poor, with the possibility of influence by the weathering elements on the building faade that is richly decorated. The physical structure is currently repaired to the degree of structural stabilisation. The building was closed and rainwater prevented from penetrating, which created the necessary conditions for further works. 7. Level of risk In view of the fact that the protection measures, such as closing the building and its protection, are more or less of a temporary nature, the building is still at risk, from weathering factors (exterior of the building) to some extent, and also exposed to destruction of the already conducted works on the building, as they were of a temporary nature. 8. Conservation philosophy The reconstruction of the Town Hall in Sarajevo as a national monument implies the reconstruction of the destroyed structure using the methods of restoration and reconstruction, to the extent these methods are unavoidable, mainly on the destroyed parts of the faade and interior. The new function of the building includes its original function the seat of the City Administration and the purpose that is of vital national interest the National and University Library in its former premises. Apart from these functions, there is a plan for the building to have some public function: to house a museum and be a place where public manifestations are organised. To that end it is necessary to carry out internal adaptation of the building in order to adjust it to the installations of modern technology. In view of the significance of the building and its legal treatment, the preparation of all project plans is focused on restoration and conservation as the primary approach to the reconstruction of the building. All elements whose physical condition is convenient for conservation should be treated in this way. The restoration of all elements should be based on the analysis of the original documentation and research done on the building itself, in compliance with the provisions of international charters and conventions: The Riga Charter on Authenticity and Historical Reconstruction in Relationship to Cultural Heritage (ICCROM, 2000) provides the following justification for the rehabilitation of the Town Hall in Sarajevo: - reconstruction of cultural heritage, lost through disaster, whether of natural or human origin, may be acceptable The Town Hall building was hit by many heavy and inflammable missiles in the night of 25-26 August 1992 and was then burnt and collapsed in the fire. The library holdings and physical structure of the building suffered incalculable damage in a moment.

when the monument concerned has outstanding artistic, symbolic or environmental (whether urban or rural) significance for regional history and cultures

As the National and University Library the Town Hall was important for the entire region. By the destruction of the library and scientific holdings, the Town Hall lost its function as the central scientific library of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Declaration of Dresden (ICOMOS, 1982) provides justification for rehabilitation as follows: Since men have been influenced by the wartime destruction and by reconstruction work after the war to regard monuments with increasing interest, in particular as providing evidence of history, fresh emphasis has been placed on the demand to preserve the original substance of the monument. By this is meant that substance which, in all those components which make it worthy of being recognized as a monument, has grown through the ages, and which, by virtue of its authenticity, confirms the origins of the monument and its historical evolution up to the present day.

Anasthylosis will be the prevailing method used in the reconstruction of the Town Hall in Sarajevo. The reconstruction requires sorting, cleaning, conservation and reintegration of the fragments. More and more clearly, peoples combine pride in monuments of their own history with interest in monuments of other countries and with respect for cultural achievements, both past and present, of the peoples represented by these monuments. Worldwide exchange of knowledge and experience on characteristic features, historical evidence, and the beauty of the cultural heritage, especially the monuments of every people and each ethnic and social group, plays a constructive role in assuring equitable, peaceful co-existence between peoples .

The Town Hall is the spatially largest and most impressive building from the Austro-Hungarian time in Sarajevo. It is also the most beautiful and most important example of the pseudo-Moorish style in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Article 9 of the Venice Charter (ICOMOS, 1965.) reads as follows: "The process of restoration is a highly specialized operation. Its aim is to preserve and reveal the aesthetic and historic value of the monument and is based on respect for original material and authentic documents".

Interventions on the Town Hall building will be carried out using the same or identical materials documented over the time in the historical data about the building, as well as in the analyses of the building material. Principle 2, European Charter of the Architectural Heritage (Council of Europe, 1975): "The past as embodied in the architectural heritage provides the sort of environment indispensable to a balanced and complete life."

Since its early days the Town Hall building was a memory of a place. Newspapers and magazines carried texts and photographs of it thus documenting a period of time. "This heritage should be passed on to future generations in its authentic state and in all its variety as an essential part of the memory of the human race. Otherwise, part of man's awareness of his own continuity will be destroyed".

The function of the Town Hall gradually began to focus on the spiritual aspirations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, so that the administration became slowly replaced by culture, science and art. In any case, this building is a monument of spirituality of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Stockholm, 1998) sends out a message:

___________________________________________________________________________
City Hall Sarajevo Bosnia and Herzegovina

28 November 2007

Feasibility Study IRPP/SAAH 18 _____________________________________________________________________________________________________

"These are responsibilities that all -- individually and collectively -- must share just as all share the wealth of the memory, in the search for a sustainable development at the service of Mankind".

The symbolic meaning of the Town Hall emerged after its destruction as an attempt to destroy the cultural identity of the state and its people and its reconstruction is a symbol of resistance to the powers of destruction. 9. Level of interventions The intervention on the Town Hall can be subsumed under the general term of rehabilitation, which means restoring a damaged or destroyed property to its condition prior to the destruction, using the same or identical materials that were used prior to its damaging or destruction, and, as much as possible, the same technique of building. This method is necessarily combined with reconstruction, since the structural system is adapted to new purposes and fittings. 10.

Priorities for intervention Urgent protection works on the building are necessary roof and protection works to prevent further dilapidation of the faade protection edgings and gutters, closing of the building Research works on the faade research of the existing materials and sculpted elements on the faade Preparing main projects for a functional reconstruction of the Town Hall (these projects will define in detail the repair, restoration and colour treatment of the faade, external works, internal repairs, staircases, floors, walls, ceilings and necessary fittings). Detailed description of the work Phase 1 structural stabilisation and protection of the building The structural stabilisation works were carried out in 1996-97 Fence was built around the building; Destroyed fragments were sorted and placed outside the building, within the fenced area around it; Repair of the structural system of masonry walls; Information board with details about the monument was put up; Reconstruction of the roof with the installation of a lightning conductor; Repair of the steel dome and false ceiling, including the reconstruction of the glazed covering; Supporting the heavily damaged structure of the assembly hall with load-bearing scaffolding; Phase 2 structural stabilisation and protection of the building Works continued on the reconstruction of horizontal structures and the assembly hall in 2002-04: - Two destroyed fields were fully reconstructed, including vaulted and brick structures; - Due to the extent of damage, a large number of pillars (angle and free-standing pillars) on the ground and upper floors were replaced, together with the load-bearing arches on the ground floor;

Cost benefit analysis of the project We can expect both primary and secondary economic benefits from the reconstruction works. Grants or donations either from individuals or private trusts for the reconstruction of the monument might be treated as a particular form of primary benefit. According to the analysis of the National Trust of Heritage in the USA, 60% of the conservation works price benefits the labour market, creating employment for local building companies and labourers and increasing production of building materials. Through awareness-raising activities we expect a direct benefit to the project of 30,000. Primary transactions will set off secondary spillover or external effects, many of which may have significant consequences. If such effects can be exclusively attributed to the reconstruction of the monument, as opposed to other development projects, such secondary benefits all need to be considered in the analysis of economic values. One positive effect of the reconstruction is the impact on the land values of nearby properties, as measured by net income. Another form of benefit is an increase in the tax base, which devolves to the municipality, in so far as it collects the property tax. One can also expect the stimulation of net private investment. Such investment in the community is desirable to widen the economic base, and those taxpayers, workers and other members of the community can benefit from such investments. Perhaps the easiest way to identify them is to determine which are related to the renewed attraction of the monument, such as food, merchandise, retailing, transportation and other sectors of the local economy. These spillover effects are expected to create more employment and income, both for individuals and the government.
