Students will re-imagining the 1984 XIV Olympic Winter Games and the conflicts the city endured in the 1990ties urbicide (1). Both events still activate the collective memory and contemporary imaginary in Sarajevo as moments of blood, tears, and sweat (2). The spectacle of the games accounted for the concentration of the events happening at a distance of fewer than 25 km around the city, making Sarajevo a total urban experience. Re-imagining the Olympics to build a city’s future and the role for placemaking of contemporary architecture, urbanism, and culture. What if after the games is before the next games? The reimagines a new Olympic legacy at the intersection of homegrown turbo architecture (3). It raises the issue of the resources of the games on different scales and disciplines for the entire city, opening up a discussion on constructing new frontiers of re-activating, re-imagining, and re-constructing what is already there. The fundamental questions of any large-scale event placinga city or an entire country on the world map, from the Olympic Games, Soccer World Cups, or world exhibitions, question to what extent; the event should be seen as temporary, or in what way architecture designs extend to something more permanent. This thinking includes existing, new buildings and infrastructure. Durability becomes a concept that questions circularity, reuse, and resources, metaphorically and practically, enhancing the city profile. How are the costs, benefits, and ownership distributed to the citizens and the urban development, commercialization, and media of events? Site, material, and stakeholder analysis of urban spaces and Olympic infrastructures, are design informants for the architecture and urban design processes, to transform this torn-city and re-wildered landscape into alternate active spaces of engagement in harmony with the environment.
