The design was prompted by the idea of an exibition space forming an integral point of the large Kamberovic Park alongside the River Bosna, in the centre of the town of Zenica. The concept was based on a deterministic approach to history – as a series of causes and consequences, while avoiding falling into a trap of a pathos-ridden and artificial representation of a part of our national history. The architectural space aspires to create an emotional communication with the user. The entry sequence – dissapearing underground as a one-way movement between walls lined with mirrors and then returning to the beginning – at the same point but on a different level, creates a sense of relative space and reveals the time as the content.
