Geometry and Playfulness of Nature when the Old and the New Meet

architect Juraj Neidhardt
project Housing in Alipašina Street, Sarajevo, Bosna and Herzegovina
written by Elša Turkušić


A composition made of two housing slab buildings on a slope covered with vegetation in Alipašina Street in the centre of Sarajevo represents a contribution to the dwelling culture through a synthesis of modern residential function and transformed principles of architectural heritage. Simple polychrome geometrical volumes, which stand on pillars and end in an enlivened fifth façade, are a recognizable architectural expression of Juraj Neidhardt, inspired by the principles of Le Corbusier.
