Creative Exhange 2019

13-15 February, 2019

The three day event at the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) in Ljubljana will again represent the most insightful annual gathering around European architecture, and showcase ideas and trends for the future development of architecture and the profession.

The Focus Talks, on the first day of the event, will feature Giovanna Borasi, chief curator at the CCA and editor of the book The Other Architect.

The keynote speakers at the conference will also be architects who run well established practices today, but develop them in a constant search for alternative architectural tools and strategies: Gustavo Utrabo, Aleph Zero architects, RIBA International Prize 2018 winners; Freek Persyn, 51N4E Architects, European Urban Public Space Prize 2018 winners; and Špela Videčnik, OFIS Architects. The Focus Talks will be chaired by Mika Savela, editor-in-chief of the Finnish Architectural Review and 2016 Future Architecture Alumni.

The Matchmaking Conference will feature 25 selected emerging creatives that have submitted their ideas to the Future Architecture Call for Ideas 2019 and winners of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe Young Talent Architecture Award 2018.

Over the course of the event, the Future Architecture Fair will provide a forum for architects or architecture offices, institutions, producers, curators and other professionals to present their projects, connect and meet partners for projects and stay abreast of the latest developments in architecture.

Architecture usually arises somewhere between who we are and who we would like to be. Looking at the moments following the breakthroughs, observing not only completed buildings, but also following the plans of those that have never been created and examining the accompanying media messages, we will try to outline the aspirations and transformations of Polish architecture of the last century.
