Architecture is communication
The theme of the thirteenth BINA Festival is dedicated to communications in architecture, communicating through architecture and the spreading of ideas about the relationship of city spaces. Communis means “common, community and sharing” and communicare “to do something in common”. Architecture and architects representing the public interest, improving communities and communicativeness stimulate development of space, social processes and cities.
There is the longstanding lack of affordable communication about architecture and architectural concepts of basic human needs. In the interactions between nature, objects, urban and common spaces, city heritage and new urban areas, we see the development of architectural ideas and communications with users of the spaces and the return of architecture to its essence. Through communication with the audience, including those “in” and “outside” the profession of architecture, BINA platform sets itself as a mediator, as a link, as a space for exchanging ideas and opinions among the widest population with professionals and the academic community of Belgrade and the wider region. Communication between citizens and the city is an essential relationship on which the development of society’s democracy in the future is based.
Through established dialogues with the past via the renowned architect, academic and professor Ivan Antić (1923-2005), with the present through the EU project Creative Europe, Sharing Cities: Creative Momentum (SCCM-Urban Hub 2) and with the future via the EU Platform Creative Europe / Future Architecture Platform , the BINA program will be dynamic and will attract interest from the widest possible audience. Through the educational part of the program, city walks, interventions, actions, workshops, guest lectures, we will explore spatial practices and narrative techniques as well as media forms that best present contemporary architecture and design.
