Future Architecture Festival: Breaking Down the Walls

#Festival
20 Sep - 30 Sep 2017
Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO), Ljubljana, SI
Ljubljana, Slovenia

The emerging generation of the most talented architects and urban planners is breaking down walls: not only built walls, but also imaginary, professional, and ideological walls. For them, architecture is not necessarily an activity whose sole purpose is construction, but rather a field for intellectual research. Their ideas presented in the Future Architecture platform over the course of the past two years reflect their critical approach and determination to address the most pressing problems of our times. For them, architecture is a way of thinking, seeing, analyzing, and changing the world we work in. The Future Architecture Festival brings together Europe's architects, designers, creative individuals, and curators with their most powerful ideas for the future. There will be film screenings, exhibitions, conferences, workshops, and discussions. (Join us as a volunteer!)
