The exhibition theme at the Second Balkan Architectural Biennale is Capital a.
Each architect participant is given the possibility to present this theme in his/her own way by using different types of presentations. The last economic crisis that engulfed this region in 2008 reflected on all fields and architecture too. Generally, the crisis has affected all forms of creativity. During the recent years, an architect has been in a position between an investor and the given circumstances, directly and indirectly. The economic crisis has affected and still affects the quality, as well as the quantity of construction. All this is related to the size of structures, which can be observed at the physical, but also the aesthetic field. This is a unique opportunity to show the response of experts in the existing circumstances through both the constructed structures and unrealized projects. The theme applies only to structures and projects created in the last 2 years.
The conference will discuss the position and role of architecture in the Balkans. The aim is to examine the framework in which the architecture of the Balkans appears, by setting architects’ wishes, society’s abilities and the final results of Balkan architecture into a single critical context.
In general interior design is considered as a part of a growing industry. However, it is important to pay attention that interior design is concerned as a category of luxury services market, so it is constantly subjected to ups and downs of the economy. On the other hand, this should not significantly affect and discourage professional designers.
