Abstract

he theories related to the Wagner’s “Community of Practices” highlight how the contemporary cultural system cannot disregard information sharing through rhizomatic models no longer vertical, in continuous adaptation to the conditions and relationships of the context. The method seeks to prepare an ar-chitect who is not a mere specialist but a strategist, who does not only design reality, but reality: that mix between utopian thought and its implemen-tation, which has always been the meaning of one’s work. That ability to translate reality into an interpretation of meaning. That ability to subject re-ality to a critical path capable of ma-king a “theory” explicit through the architectural project, which becomes its operational plan and its genealo-gy. A figure closer to what has been described and outlined by Vitruvius in De Architettura in the past, and by Manfredo Tafuri in “Projects and uto-pia. Capitalist architecture and deve-lopment”, recently. Working on Sarajevo, a city that histo-rically was a crossroads between the history of the West and of the East, which is considered the Jerusalem of Europe, and was at the same time the trigger of the First World War, se-emed to us to be a unique opportu-nity for apply the learning system to a changing city, full of contradictions and paradoxes, an archipelago with many different islands. From the end of the war to the present, Sarajevo has been struggling to return to being the capital and multi-ethnic and religious crossroads, with an eye to the histori-cal past of the pre-disintegration bloc of the Soviet bloc and a look to the fu-ture: the forerunner of that multi-ethnic constitution and multicultural that the European Union itself is inspired by. The regeneration of the Kasarna Marsal Tito area is an opportunity to transform a former abandoned bar-racks on the University Campus.
