Praznine is a non‐profit organisation that deals with critical thought and theory in the areas of spatial planning, architecture, art. Its publishing and other activities promote a critical re-evaluation and constant rethinking of the role of architecture and arts in the modern-day society. Established in 2011 by (then) students of architecture, it has since expanded to include writers, editors and collaborators in areas ranging from architecture, philosophy to visual arts and social sciences.

Spatial Confrontations


Building future through critical dialogue

Spatial Confrontations


Building future through critical dialogue
The architecture of the future will derive from critical evaluation of the present and dialogue among several social, spatial and scientific practices.
File under

Architecture cannot be a slave to consumerism. In order to exist and reinvent itself as an independent, intellectual practice it needs to undergo a constant process of self-evaluation, critical discourse and dialogue with other practices and ideas.

We aim to challenge the existing concepts that architects have formed about future architecture and confront these ideas with philosophical, scientific, artistic, environmental and other visions of the future. We are interested in widening the debate and addressing the convoluted issues of contemporary society.

By confronting the ideas and visions of architects amongst each other or opposite selected experts from other relevant fields in a form of dialogues, we will critically address some of the core questions on architecture in future society. The talks will result in written transcripts that will be published and distributed around Europe as part of thematic issues of magazine Praznine (Void).
