New Generations Festival – Fifth Edition
We are excited to share that we will be hosting the fifth festival and first international edition of New Generations, Building the Atlas in Warsaw, Poland, from November 15th – 17th 2018!
The festival will be one of the first big events hosted at the new ZODIAK Warsaw Architecture Pavilion, co-created by the Polish Architects Association Warsaw Branch with the Warsaw City Hall.
This year’s festival, with the participation of local and international practices from all over Europe, will focus on three themes:
Each group tends to define its work through a precise term. From the classic, but general “office” – which implies a precise organisational structure, with clear hierarchies, passing through the word “atelier”, or “workshop”, which instead implies a more open and experimental concept of work and more like the artist’s way of working. This theme is aimed at analysing and comparing different organisational models of the architectural firm.
BUSINESS refers to the different aspects that allow an architecture firm to be independent and economically sustainable. We will analyse types of projects, budgets and clients, fees, with the aim of understanding successful models which might be considered as examples for the new generation of designers involved in the festival.
The Internet and the social media opened a series of new opportunities in terms of visibility, and radically changed the way we communicate what we do, contributing to a redefinition of the classical hierarchies of the architectural firm. MEDIA therefore focuses on the opportunities offered by digital channels, analysing successful marketing strategies, which often reside behind the most successful projects.
