Thelandersson, Marlene, 2009. Efter krig kommer fred : att planera för återuppbyggnad i en krigsdrabbad stad. First cycle, G2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



This paper intends to provide a better understanding of how to rebuild a crisis affected area and how to plan for the inhabitants of a wounded city. It will also examine the landscape architect's tasks in this work to provide a planning perspective.
The discussion of reconstruction is significant because the insight and knowledge in the subject is needed in order to help nations after a disaster. Bosnia-Herzegovina's capital Sarajevo is a city recovering from a civil war where the city's situation was complicated by an ethnic conflict that has been segregating it. The restoration of the city's structure can free people from their tragedy and make them live again.

The study describes the subject of reconstruction and finds out what has been done in Sarajevo and how the discussions on this went, and also how to take on the task when planning for the victims of the conflict. Sarajevo siege in 1995 left the city in tatters and the non-profit organizations made a heavy reconstruction work possible. The city has been able to reconstruct the landmarks and buildings through external donations, which gave funds to the selected cultural heritage. The difficulty lies in integrating these with existing settlements and in the broader context of the changing culture war meant. There is also a problem that external organizations have made the choices restoring even though they are not fully aware of the city's culture. Politicians have a big impact on the planning of the reconstruction area where people are left outside and quickly composed master plans does not maintain a sustainable structure in the city. This is a landscape design issue that is rarely discussed but is highly relevant to the active addressing. Landscape perspective must be addressed when a war-torn city is to be rebuilt because the reconstruction affects the landscape.
