Prestigious international architectural Piranesi Award, conferred since 1989, is part of the international conference Piran Days of Architecture (PDA). It is named after the 18th century Italian artist and architect Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778), whose family roots originate from Piran. It prizes best architectural realization built in a Central Europe region in the past two years, and since 2008 also the most innovative student ideas. Its focus is on the respectful relation of contemporary architecture to the natural, cultural and historical context. Through the presentation of diversity of high quality European architecture it encourages cultural identity and underlining among other the importance of revitalization of our modernistic architecture. First Piranesi Award was conferred in 1989 to Serbian architect and artist Bogdan Bogdanović for the Dudik Memorial Park in Vukovar, Croatia. In 2018 Piranesi Award was conferred the jubilee thirty time. 41 architectural and 22 student projects were nominated by national selectors of 9 invited European countries and student selectors of 12 invited European architectural faculties. Members of the 2018 international jury, chaired by architect Valerie Mulvin, were architects Matteo Bolgan, Eduard Callís, Aljoša Dekleva, Tina Gregorič, Gernot Hertl, Palmar Kristmundsson, Niall McCullough, Guillem Moliner and Amir Vuk Zec. The title theme of 2018 PDA conference was Architecture is a culture. Slovene national selector architect Andrej Hrausky wrote among others: "... Good architecture doesn’t come by itself although it is the most important part of social superstructure called culture. Architecture is not an economic activity pursuing the profit. It is more the enrichment of our society and brings sense to it. Good architecture doesn’t bring survival but rather life itself in its most precious form ...".
By taking part in the exhibition Bring your project, organized by the Belgrade International Architecture Week (BINA), URED studio is presenting results of its interdisciplinary practice showing built projects of various types and scales, expanding from architectural design, refurbishment, adaptive reuse, interior design, competition projects and workshop tutoring. Studio AKVS will present their work from user’s perspective, through camera objective – a photograph or a computational simulation of space. At the exhibition and the accompanying lecture, selected projects will be discussed via 7 topics that closely define studio’s approach to architectural design – light, air, material, inside-outside, everyday life scenarios, individual interpretation and free flow.
By applying the design methodical tools, the authors of the exhibition "Modern in Belgrade" innovatively present selected architectural works and spatial ambiances created during the Cold War period on the territory of Belgrade. The exhibition summarizes the results of a long-term research of the authors in the domain of visual representation of the post-war modernist heritage of Belgrade architecture. The aim of the exhibition is to contribute to the understanding of canonical architectural designs and constructions and their roles in a wider socio-political, economic and cultural context as a critical instrument for reflection and production of contemporary space.
The PPT presentation is aimed at presenting the Serbian Green Building Council as an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organization which has recognized the negative impact of the building sector and works on the promotion of the idea of the transformation of the same.
The organization’s key activity is to raise expert, public, decision-makers’ and business awareness of the necessity of such changes and to spread knowledge about green, i.e. sustainable construction.
In the second part of the presentation, the audience will be given the basic information about green building. Why is it necessary that green building standards become a new norm? Why is green building important both for individuals and the community and in which direction is it developing? Examples of good practice are to provide the audience with a detailed description of the aforesaid.
This year the world celebrates 100 years since the founding of the Bauhaus, the State School of Architecture and Applied Arts, which was founded by architect Valter Gropius in 1919 in Weimar, Germany. The Bauhaus was considered a progressive school in all aspects, even in relation to gender equality. However, theory and practice were not proven equal, and this lecture will give a closer look at the biographies of women attending the Bauhaus, as well as the difficulties they faced there. The female names of Bauhaus such as Marianne Brandt, Anni Albers, Gunta Stolzl, Otti Berger, Gertrud Arndt and others are less well-known today than their male colleagues, although they are the authors of some of the most iconic products that this school has produced.
