Future Architecture is the first pan-European platform for architecture museums, festivals and producers, bringing ideas on the future of cities and architecture closer to the wider public.
Project duration: 1 November 2015–31 October 2017
EU support (2-year): 500.000 EUR (1st year), 500.000 EUR (2nd year)
– Think Future. We will highlight the emerging generation of talents in various disciplines and explore and share their ideas about the future of cities and architecture.
– Exchange. 14 organisers from 13 countries will create a pan-European programme, visit emerging creators and present their ideas at exhibitions, conferences, lectures and workshops, in books and on the web.
– Raise awareness. The platform will make complex issues of architecture comprehensible to everyone, and promote a more sustainable living environment.
– Build commitment. A Future Architecture European Quality label will recognize organisers who work with aspiring emerging talents and show their commitment to the platform objectives.
The Future Architecture platform wants to introduce and celebrate innovation, experimentation and the ideas of a generation that will design the architecture and build Europe’s cities in the years to come. It will promote European innovation, architecture, culture, knowledge and social capital through a single common platform.
