‘’The left bank of the river Sava was Austrian. From the shore to Zemun were only sand and swamps. On the banks were patrols, one on the very river mouth of Dunav and Sava, second to the south, half way to the railway bridge, and the third one was located on the bridge. Between those outposts, at a slow pace, on the path right next to the river bank, two Hungarian guards were patrolling with rifles and big green feathers on their Kalpaks which resembled a whole peacock’s tail. Between their rounds, there was around a half an hour opening. We used that opening to swim across the river, in order to go to the swamps and gather water lilies. Unfortunately, one day, the guards mixed their schedule and surprised us. They managed to catch Hugo, who went the furthest. Half naked and soaking wet, they made him march to Zemun, where they kept him until the night fell, they then returned him to the shore and let him swim back across.’’
The European Future Architecture Platform, co-financed from the Creative Europe Program (2018/2021), after the first two-year cycle, has entered into the second, four-year cycle.
The Future Architecture Platform now gathers an even greater number of institutions and organisations (20) from 16 European countries with the purpose to present visions of the future of architecture from the perspective of the generation of professionals who are just now entering the scene and who are going to be responsible for the future shapes of our environment in which we are going to live in. The intent of this platform is that the work of the chosen authors be shown in as many countries as possible, thereby allowing for new contacts and new forms of cooperation to be made both between the selected authors as well as with the platform members and organizers.
Within the framework of the Future Architecture platform, BINA 2016 has dealt with neuralgic points of the city of Belgrade, trying to map places which need new energy or purpose. During the next BINA 2017 Belgrade suburbs were in focus. This year we go step further, from general to specific, we have selected one specific suburb – LEDINE and the case of the BUS STOP FACELIFT.
