Hidden Commons in Marijin Dvor nominated for European Award

12721893_1742128606023816_377997126_nThe project “Hidden commons” that took place in a public courtyard in the Sarajevo neighborhood of Marijin Dvor, was nominated for the European Prize for Urban Public Space 2016.

“In 2013, by accident, two organizations Lift and Crveno rediscover this place and decided to intervene and to explore how it can become more than it was, a more common space,” as written on the website of Dani Arhitekture.

“The building Marijin Dvor is one of the most important examples of the Austro-Hungarian (central European) palaces in Sarajevo. It was built in stages from 1885 to 1899 as a resident and commercial building in the form of a block with four sides. Inside the block is placed the most beautiful and largest garden in the city, popularly called Marindvorsko,” as written in the description of the project.
