With the 4th Call for Ideas the Future Architecture Platform invites multi-disciplinary emerging creatives who work on transformative projects and ideas for the future of architecture to apply for participation in the European Architecture Program in 2019.

The Future Architecture Platform acts as a key platform for exchange and networking for European architecture and integrates some of Europe’s most important architectural events. The platform enables architecture museums, festivals, producers, publishers, agencies, academic institutions and multi-disciplinary emerging professionals to easily connect and build joint projects.

After three editions, the Future Architecture Platform has become a great opportunity for young creatives to materialize their ideas and kickstart their careers, collaborating with strong architectural institutions within Europe.

From the organizers:

Future Architecture is more than a competition. Future Architecture is changing the very foundation of architecture in Europe and beyond. Exploring boundaries. Breaking down the walls. Building new systems. Forming new coalitions. Providing talented conceptual thinkers and practitioners with opportunities to speak up – and be seen and heard.

Let the Future Architecture platform help you boost and sharpen your practice. Start exchanging your ideas and projects with high profile institutions – museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials, and festivals – to find avenues toward real international recognition.

We are inviting multi-disciplinary emerging professionals from all over the world to apply with transformative projects related to our living environments. Send us your completed projects, theoretical or conceptual propositions for spatial, social or cultural innovations and join our discussion about the future of architecture.

We welcome projects that address:

– systemic changes
– practical problems
– new areas of operation beyond existing frameworks

Become part of the European Architecture Program 2019 and see how Future Architecture can help you develop your practice. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in one or more of the following activities.

Future Architecture’s board of members will invite selected applicants to present their projects at the Creative Exchange in Ljubljana and to enter into possible activities within the European Architecture program. The platform will cover the travel (from within the EU) and accommodation costs of the selected participants.

Platform members will cover travel (from within the EU) and accommodation costs and provide an honorarium to the participants that they invite to contribute to their events.

All applications will be published on the website of the Future Architecture platform. The applications will be judged by the Future Architecture board of members, the Future Architecture alumni, and members of the public by way of online voting.
