Future Architecture > 2020 Call for Ideas

Future Architecture is a platform that enables emerging professionals to share ideas and projects with peers from all over the world, as well as with high-profile institutions – museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials and festivals – to find avenues toward international recognition.

The scheme is open to emerging architects, landscape architects, urban planners, designers, engineers, artists, curators, people involved in architectural communication, and anyone whose professional work is focused on the future of architecture and living environments. Applications are invited for transformative projects related to our living environments – whether completed projects, or theoretical/conceptual propositions for spatial, social or cultural innovation.

The organisers welcome projects that address:

  • Systemic changes (prototypes and systems).

  • Site-specific cases (projects that are customised for certain contexts and tasks, and that cannot be replicated).

  • Next alliances (cross-, trans- and multi-disciplinary projects, exploring new design processes and methodology).

  • New written narratives (Writing Grant for writers exploring the worlds, landscapes and realities faced by emerging practices shaping future urban environments).

Selected applicants will be invited to participate in one or more of the activities in the 2020 European Architecture Program. (A full list of the events can be seen here.) Platform members will cover travel (from within the EU) and accommodation costs, and will provide an honorarium to the participants that they invite to contribute to their events.

Selected applicants will also be invited to present their projects at the Creative Exchange conference/fair in Ljubljana, Slovenia 12-14 February 2020. The platform will cover travel (from within the EU) and accommodation costs for selected participants.

Deadline: 6 January 2020
