The open forum, part of Future Architecture 2020 Creative Exchange taking place 12.-13. February 2020 at MAO, Ljubljana, will provide cultural operators and emerging creatives in architecture an opportunity to present their work to the Future Architecture audience, meet partners and examine opportunities, while the audiences will have the chance to explore the latest in the field of architecture and urban planning.

The highlight of the fair will be the Pitch Cocktails, an evening event, where all the Fair participants will introduce themselves and their work in short 5-minute public presentations. Cocktails are included!

The Future Architecture platform is a well-balanced ecosystem of European cultural players in architecture who perform specific roles within a complex European architecture program. It connects multi-disciplinary emerging talents to high profile institutions like museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials, and festivals. It provides talented conceptual thinkers and practitioners in architecture with opportunities to speak up - and be seen and heard.
