Sarajevo polje is a classical peri-urban case in which competing land use interests need to be negotiated and solved by multifunctional solutions that include the natural assets of the landscape. Therefore, the question of how to balance the natural foundation of this landscape with its economic development perspective is crucial. The landscape perspective should help building a cross-sectoral and community-based vision for Sarajevo Polje.

The Workshop provides an opportunity for students to knowledge of a new culture and development of European consciousness and identity through intercultural teamwork and studying a foreign landscape and the culture in which it is embedded. The specific emphasis of this project is on the integration of urban planning, environmental protection and landscape architecture for building a sustainable development perspective for the urban periphery of Sarajevo. It is expected that this interdisciplinary cooperation will produce innovative solutions to the planning, design and management of dispersed and fragmented areas in urban fringe zones.
