Belgrade International Architecture Week
Beogradska Internacionalna Nedelja Arhitekture


11th Belgrade International Architecture Week


5 – 28th May 2016

The borders have been erased, multidiscipline is assumed, climate has changed, time has shrunk, and the number of those who live in cities grows at great rate, bolstered by unexpected migrations. The Future has begun and that is why we are talking about it now… Commited to our fundamental vocation to support thinking about the quality of built environment, criteria and values that contribute to advancment of architectural design, we believe that the choice of topics at this year’s BINA is both current and significant to everyone – not just for architects, experts and fans of architecture.

The exhibition Energy Spots Belgrade is a part of paneuropean project Future Architecture Platform within co-funding Creative Europe program and it centers around the quickly-developing Belgrade. This exhibition is an attempt to point, on a small scale, to particular spatial and energy spots of the city. According to chosen authors and creative teams, these spots have the potential to point to possible solutions of recognized urban problems which are present in other urban environments as well. Selected authors and teams provide their own vision of a possible production of space of the city in our near future.

International exhibit HOUSING 2015 represented a review of the most significant, topical realization in the field of housing in the country and abroad, in the period from 2010 – 2015. The exhibit was organized by the Department of Housing at the Faculty of Civil engineering, University of Nis. International scientific-artistic committee, which consisted of 14 respected professors and architects from 11 countries, had selected 45 works (from 22 countries spanning over 5 continents) in 3 categories (Realized architectural buildings, Architectural projects and Experiments and research in the field of housing). The primary goal of this manifestation was to show the most recent accomplishments of architectural design in the field of housing in one place, as well as to compare our experience in this field with experiences from abroad.

The objects that were shown at the exhibition are the works of students of the Faculty of Architecture in Graz, which were made within the course “Designing special topics” in the 6th semester of undergraduate studies. The spatial origami structures in the exhibition were generated with the help of the algorithmic editor Grasshopper, which is integrated with the CAD program Rhinoceros. For each project, the students generated an individual algorithm with which they parametrically defined their spatial forms.
Organizer: TU Graz (Austria)
Mentor: Milena Stavrić, Albert Wiltsche

The exhibition of photographs by Željko Mandić was dominated by urban landscapes without people, which had an apocalyptic undertone. Dilapidated and abandoned buildings, which are silent witnesses of a society in transition, are embraced by nature that changes the structure of concrete and bricks. The photographs also speak of the carelessness of a society, apathy and mindlessness of a time in which the past is not preserved and respected.
