Copenhagen Architecture Festival is enthusiastic to be part of the new European Architecture Platform LINA, an alliance of 27 architectural museums, universities, research networks, foundations, triennials, biennials, and other prominent architectural organizations. A continuation of the Future Architecture Platform, LINA aims at helping architecture tackle the climate and environmental crisis by promoting new projects that help make the European Green Deal a reality.
LINA has launched a new OPEN CALL for innovative projects and practices that address sustainable and environmental challenges in architecture, with the ambition of eventual implementation. Applications are open for a wide range of projects, social innovations, critical practices, research, publications, experimentations and speculations that contribute to a more sustainable construction and design of our living space and environment at large, and address the everyday, ethical, and social implications of the climate crisis.
If you are a young and emerging architect, landscape architect, urban planner, designer, engineer, researcher, artist, curator or any other creative professional at the beginning of your career, join the call!
Application deadline is 12 September 2022. You can apply via LINA's official website.
To create opportunities for greater visibility and circulation of emerging professionals in the field of architecture, all applications will be published on the LINA Platform website for projects to get seen and heard within the international community. The authors of the 25 best projects will be invited to partake in the LINA Conference in Ljubljana in October 2022, where they will present their ideas to high-profile European architectural institutions and connect with them during matchmaking events. The resulting collaborations will become part of the LINA Architecture Programme 2022–23, a rich calendar of conferences, mentorship programs, workshops and various other events across Europe and beyond.
LINA is headed by Ljubljana's Faculty of Architecture and is co-funded by Creative Europe.
