FUTURE ARCHITECTURE 2020

CALL FOR IDEAS. Bewerbungsschluss: 6. Januar 2020

Present your new work at the most significant architectural happenings and events that form the core of the 2020 European Architecture Program.

Future Architecture is more than a competition. Future Architecture is changing the very foundations of architecture in Europe and beyond. Its goal is to explore boundaries. To break down walls. To build new systems. To form new coalitions. It is a platform that provides practitioners and conceptual thinkers with opportunities to speak up – and to be seen and heard.

Let the Future Architecture platform help you elevate and sharpen your practice. Start exchanging your ideas and projects with peers from all over the world as well as high-profile institutions – museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials and festivals – to find avenues toward international recognition.

We are inviting multidisciplinary emerging professionals from all over the globe to apply with transformative projects related to our living environments. Send us your completed projects, your theoretical or conceptual propositions for spatial, social or cultural innovation, and join our discussion about the future of architecture.

We welcome projects that address:

  • Systemic changes (prototypes and systems)
  • Site-specific cases (projects customized for certain contexts and tasks; cannot be replicated)
  • Next alliances (cross-, trans- and multi-disciplinary projects, exploring new design processes and methodology)
  • New written narratives (Writing Grant for writers exploring the worlds, landscapes and realities faced by emerging practices shaping future urban environments)
