Politics and Architecture are in a close relation. It is mainly politics, what influences architecture and urbanity - laws, fundings and competitions for public projects, determine the architectural process. What role can architects and creatives play, in reconsidering these political agendas? Presently we are experiencing a global rise of populism and nationalism. Separation against nations and people, happen on our medias course of the day. What tools for our part, can be used to reveal against ideas, that are dominated in Europe? Creatives are able to depict futures, in a way spectators feel reflected of and start thinking about their own impacts on the very next day of our future.
