Copenhagen Architecture Festival (CAFx) is a platform that, through a number of initiatives, explores, discusses and communicates architectural and urban challenges. The goal is to challenge the field of architecture and promote critical thinking, inspire, engage and increase public awareness of how architecture and urban planning shape our lives and the world - and how our lives and the world affect the other way around. Architecture is not just bricks, spaces and frames. It is sensual, bodily and social. It is political, historical and psychological. Architecture is human and it affects all aspects of life.
CAFx is Scandinavia's largest annual architecture festival, which since its establishment in 2014, through lectures, exhibitions, excursions, debates, a comprehensive film program, etc., every year focuses on the places where architecture's transformations intersect with human life. The festival depicts visions, conflicts and historical changes in the built environment, and explores the boundaries between aesthetics, function and identity.
2021 CAFx Summer School is organised together with BINA/Future Architecture Platform Film Summer School, MAXXI Museum of 21st Century Arts in Rome and the Oslo Architecture Triennial (OAT).

NARRATIVES OF SPACE IN FILM
Narratives of space are related to (re)presentation and (re)interpretation of architecture and landscape; be they real or artificial. By comparing formal and semantic characteristics of Yugoslav Black Wave, the aim is to explore in detail their influence on perception of the physical environment.
Climate Care is a festival engaged with theory and practice at the intersection of climate challenges, ethics of care and environmental humanities.
