The Future Architecture Platform - EU Program - CREATIVE EUROPE - program 2020
Year 2020 was marked by Covid 19, insecurity, fear, postponement of programs, but also by a search for creative ways to tackle the newly-emerged situation. The activity of all the Platform members, meetings, as well as the presentation of the Future Architecture Rooms’ plans for 2021 is now available online on the new platform entitled Future Architecture Rooms, which platform has unified the work of platform members in their respective isolated spaces and made it visible to the wide audience, but also to us, who had been prevented from realizing the programs in the previously planned manner.
The only BINA 2020 program which was realized in full was a series of five URBAN TALKS. The Urban Talks were organized with the idea of encouraging discussion on topics related to the future of urban settings and architecture and on the basis of inspiring and provocative lectures/talks held by creative artists and professionals who took part in the Future Architecture Platform’s open competition. Facing the new situation, we decided to change the format and organized the program with selected FA participants online. The talks stayed within the planned topics: contemporary housing, nature in an urban setting, activism in architecture through the prism of global challenges and local responses, spaces for children and creative approaches to the revitalization of cultural heritage - all these programs, however, touched upon the current situation and the changed living conditions and raised our awareness of the extent to which such or similar situations will be conditioning our way of life and our future attitude to space as a whole. With a view to spreading information on the platform’s activity and improving cooperation, we also decided to organize programs in cooperation with organizations from Belgrade, Niš and Novi Sad, as the top city and university centers in Serbia.
