The paper’s objective is to reassess the concepts of integrity and authenticity in regard to process of modern heritage interpretation and revitalization. The paper discusses the subject of construction and reconstruction of modern heritage by putting in correlation two modern buildings: the Barcelona Pavilion (the German Pavilion) and the Museum of History of Bosnia and Herzegovina (former Museum of the Revolution of Bosnia and Herzegovina). With a comparative analysis of architectural (envisioned), poetic (interpretative) and real (built) identities of these two similar but different buildings the paper aims to discuss the subject of originality of architectural work in temporal and spatial terms. The first objective of putting in a same context these two architectural works belonging to the different periods and social and cultural contexts is to perceive the ambiguity of connotations given to heritage in the process of its critical interpretation. Initially, the paper intents notice on how the valorisation of architectural work aesthetic, spatial and visual features is subject to visual presentations, critical interpretations and cultural understandings of architectural work in determining time and place Secondly, the paper intends to critically reassess the concepts of heritage’s architectural singularity and cultural significance, having in mind the idea of social denotation of architectural work in terms of centrality and peripherally. Lastly, the final objective of the paper is to critically approach the subject of modern heritage revitalization. The theoretical assessment of the Barcelona Pavilion reconstruction in 1986 is carried out with an aim to practically approach the challenges ahead of currently undertaken rehabilitation of the Museum of History of Bosnia and Herzegovina. By putting in correlation these two diverse but similar processes, the paper intents to stimulate the discussion on the modalities of dealing with concrete: material, constructive, social and cultural difficulties and problems which heritage preservation and rehabilitation professionals confront in the process of 20th century heritage protection and revitalization.
