Main Article Content
The Bobovica village is located on the northern slopes of the Visocica mountain (Geographic coordinates: 43º38'27.83''N, 18º13'47.60''E, elevation: 1306). It belongs to the municipality of Trnovo, and it is 17.6 km away from Trnovo by air. The main resources of the village are its geographical position on the slopes of Visocica (on which there are extensive pastures), a lot of arable land, a wealth of sources of drinking water, the proximity of the Rakitnica river (whose power was traditionally used to operate water mills) and good traffic connections with other villages on the Bjelašnica plateau. The Bobovica village was burned down in the 1992-1995 war, with rarely preserved traditional structures. After the war, new houses were built, in new locations and next to the ruins of old houses. At the same time, the newly built buildings sometimes follow the patterns of traditional architecture, but, as a rule, they are made with a modern disposition, design and materialization. After the war, some facilities were built that did not exist before.
According to the theory of Architecturally Defined Space (ADS) developed by the Author in 1987, the village of Bobovica will be observed in this paper as a system through consideration of its four basic elements: Environment, Man, Boundaries and Perspectives. The simultaneous presentation of these elements will establish their mutual cause-and-effect relationship and will not leave out anything that is important for the formation of the image of this space.
