Sarajevo Highrise II - Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The unprecedented population growth of the cities around the world requires the sustained increase of urban density. Over the past century the pressure from population growth was relieved with the vertical expansion of the city. The constant increase of building heights has pushes today’s skyscrapers to a point where less and less value is found in height alone. To fulfill the population demands of tomorrow, growth in building density will be forced to expand in all axes [X+Y+Z].

Situated above the existing urban fabric, this building occupies the space between Smaja od Bosne street and Vrbanja streeth in Sarajevo City, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The size of the structure creates an interdependecy and allows for the formation of new high communities within the already low-medium dense housing grid. Woven into the residential, govermental and commercial fabric of the grid. Large office tower provide a workplace for the residents of the structure.

These two-one tower unfold to allow for a large public park cut high bottom to the city, mantaining the necessary public access to nature. Far removed from the intensity of urban life, the park provides residents and visitors and scape to nature while still maintaining a unique visual link with the city. The building is interconnected with tha main streets of the city and the main river. The collection of these parts reaches a critical mass allowing the structures to exist as an autonomous entity within the city, a new building prototype for the Sarajevo City.
