In 2021, Kosovo Architecture Festival will be organized under the theme of Alter-Nation, a theme which also relates to that of the Future Architecture Platform Landscapes of Care and has a dual meaning in the global context, that of altering our built environment, as well as contextually, as in our case "Altering a Nation", how to build a different (better) reality for a young state such as Kosovo.
KAF's rich online and onsite program will be further enriched with 8 Future Architecture creatives invited to hold lectures and workshops from 13th of September till the third of October 2021. The 8 invited FA ideas are: Queer Commons by Alexander Auris; Materia Prima by Erika Loana &Gabriela Sisniega; CareHaus by Rafi Segal, Marisa Moran Jahn & ErnstValery; Borders of Care by Carlos Lunaza Jaraquin; Grey Matter Healthscapes by Elida Mosquera, Jerome Picard, Matthieu Boustany, and Benoist Desfonds; TransformingPublic Commons by Konstantina Tzemou, Tommaso Bernabo Silorata and Ninoslav Krgovic; Silent Landscapes by Rosa Rogina; and Disability x Maternity by FraniO'Toole.
