Shared Cities: Creative Momentum at BINA 2019

We are inviting you to the Shared Cities section of BINA 2019 festival in Belgrade

14. BINA – Pozitivno-Aktivno

Subject of the fourteenth BINA festival POSITIVE & ACTIVE draws attention to actual and timeless examples of activities in urban and architectural practice that characterize a positive and proactive approach to understanding and solving spatial problems. The BINA 2019 programme provides an insight into the values, contemporary interpretations and indications of possible new purposes of the architecture created in the period of modernism, seen by the eyes of the “Y” generation (millennials). At the same time, through various formats: exhibitions, lectures, films and installations, BINA presents a contemporary architectural practice that arises in a completely different social, political and technological context, the basic characteristics of which are: speed, dictation of capital, flexibility and transdisciplinarity. How to be professional, achieve the desired standards, and at the same time remain faithful to ethical postulates of the profession, are the topics that will be discussed at the BINA 2019.
