Summary/Abstract: The implementation of the project funded by the Ambassador’s Fund for Cultural Preservation, 2006, for the reconstruction of the Ferhadija mosque in Banja Luka, funded by the US Government, was entrusted to the Commission to Preserve National Monuments. The Ferhadija mosque was destroyed in 1993 as an act of war, and is currently being reconstructed under the leadership of a team engaged by the Islamic Community of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The work carried out between April and November 2007 consisted of identifying fragments of the Ferhadija mosque and compiling documentation on the catalogued fragments. The cataloguing of the fragments was a specialist task and included training eight young architects as part of the process of cataloguing, documentation and presentation of a total of 2770 fragments of the Ferhadija mosque. The project entailed carrying out a detailed study of each fragment, with drawings, detailed descriptions, digital drawings, photographs and the compilation of a file for each fragment.
