Description: UNITIC Towers, Sarajevo, Marijin Dvor, August 24 1992. The Unis skyscrapers, known as Momo and Uzeir, were built in 1986 according to the design of architect Ivan Štraus. They are 97 meters high. The building consists of two connected twin skyscrapers, each 25 stories high, reflecting the architectural trend of contemporary Bosnian-Herzegovinian construction. At their construction, the Unis towers had the most modern systemic equipment, including an automatic fire extinguishing system with water tanks on the roofs. Unfortunately, at the time they were set on fire, the water tanks were empty because, due to a lack of water in the city, people used water from the building for survival.
