Exhibition: 10.10. - 10.19.2014 // ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK // Union of Plovdiv Artists, Plovdiv
After a succesful opening of WELTSTADT in Berlin, the exhibition is currently traveling around the world. The next stop will be in Plovdiv, Bulgaria's second largest city, on the occasion of this year's ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK.
ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK 2014 seeks the architecture that sees beyond itself. The festival provokes “impossible” situations, questioning conventional practices, on the one hand, and communicating the idea of bringing back the impossible as a category, on the other. It is an attempt to create a laboratory environment isolated from expectations, restrictions and models. A vacuum, in which only ideas and the components of the experiment are present. The festival blurs professional boundaries and establishes connections where there were none. By rethinking architecture as a cultural matter, the festival draws the attention to fundamental issues of contemporary culture. (Excerpt from the curatorial manifesto by „DDIY“ / Don’t do it yourself).
