Belgrade International Architectural Week 2018 – from Communis to Communication

10 - 31st MAY, 2018, BELGRADE: The theme of the 13th BINA Festival is dedicated to the communication in architecture, through architecture and to spreading of the ideas about urban space. Communis means "common, community and sharing" and communicare "to do something in common". Architecture and architects representing public interest, improving communities and communicativeness stimulate the development of space, social processes and cities.

There is the longstanding lack of affordable communication of architecture and architectural concepts of basic human needs. In the interactions of nature, objects, urban and common spaces, the heritage of the city and the new urban areas, we see the development of architectural ideas and communications with the users of the space and the return of architecture to its essence. Communication with the audience, including those “in” and “outside” the profession of architecture, BINA platform sets itself as a mediator, as a link, as a space for exchanging ideas and opinions among the widest population, professionals and the academic community of Belgrade and the wider region. Communication between citizens and the city is an essential relationship on which the development of society’s democracy in the future is based.

Established dialogues with the past through the imposing architect of academician and professor Ivan Antic (1923-2005), with the present through the EU project Creative Europe, Sharing Cities: Creative Momentum (SCCM-Urban Hub 2) and visions of the future of the EU Platform Creative Europe / Future of Architecture (FAP), the BINA program will be dynamic and will attract and interest the widest audience. Through the educational part of the program, city walks, interventions, actions, workshops, guest lectures, we will explore spatial practices and narrative techniques as well as media forms that best present contemporary architecture and design.
