  • Ahmet Hadrovic Faculty of Architecture, University of Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina



This paper is based on a scientific methodology developed by its author(1987) in his doctoral dissertation and later (2004) published in a book.According to this methodology, architecture is understood as a systemconsisting of four basic elements: Environment, Man, Boundaries andPerspectives. As a case study, this methodology was checked and confirmed(in the dissertation and in the cited book) on the example of an orientaltype town hall in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovoand Macedonia, and later in all published books, to date.In this paper, the author draws attention to the element of Perspective (inarchitecture) thus emphasizing its exceptional importance in understandingarchitecture as a whole. In doing so, this element cannot be separated fromthe other three elements (Environment, Man, Boundaries) since with themhe builds architecture as a single whole.
