Contemporary theoretical concepts in architecture are almost unimaginable without new perceptions of the importance of cultural identity. Today, this very sensitive question deserves careful attention, especially in small countries, in which transitional processes are still present. Importance of the architecture in this process is invaluable. Architecture visualizes values of a culture by its formal sensations. That characteristic guides us to perceive development and upgrade the cultural identity from two positions ? through both the implications of place and time. In specific complexity the cultural identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina was created out of sources susceptible to the various influences as well as reshaped, embodying social awareness. In this context, an analytical model is constructed for the purpose of finding answers to burning questions - in which way architecture and urban forms influence the shaping of the cultural identities of societies in transition and how this cultural identity becomes locally and globally sustainable.
