Think Space 2012 Programme: Past Forward Competition

Event Description

Croatian architectural scene prides itself on a long-lasting and deep-rooted tradition of open architectural competitions, a tradition that, thanks to its comprehensiveness and versatility, seems almost unparalleled in Europe. Results are to be seen in the exceptional quality of the projects both designed and built, which not only extend the boundaries of architectural discipline, but enrich the our built environment and open up possibilities for promotion of architectural thought well beyond national borders.

In order to foster and further expand the importance and frequency of architectural competitions, it would be necessary to enrich the participants’ pool, as well as the choice of themes. Conventional architectural competitions limit full freedom of architectural thought, which especially hampers young architects and students. The noticed gap between everyday practice and experimental architectural discourse ought to be filled with detected societal and spatial issues adapted to contemporary living conditions. The new field of design and architectural activity would serve in constituting architectural profession’s identity among cultural and political domain creation of built environment, and in raising its civic engagement. It would, furthermore, draw the attention of both professional and general public to the demand of raising overall spatial awareness
