A10 #61 Jan/Feb 2015 > Eurovision Hungary


Following the political changes in 1990, a new generation of architects arose in Hungary, one educated in a more international context. Levente Polyák and Dániel Kovács of KÉK, our guest editors for this edition, take a critical view of the anti-EU rhetoric that now isolates the nation from European influences and exchange, yet they definitely see positive developments in the architecture scene. ‘Young architects are increasingly connected to international discussions and concerns. Through their global networks, events, study trips and design, they claim a place for Hungary in Europe.’ This particular focus on national problems in relation to international debate brings about a vibrant mix of old traditions and new ideas. http://www.a10.eu/magazine/issues/61/

DECEMBER 4-5, Weimar > Austerity urbanism

Urban Austerity: Impacts of the global financial crisis on cities in Europe
10th Hermann-Henselmann-Kolloquium
Belvederer Allee 4
D-99423 Weimar


The international conference “Urban Austerity: Impacts of the global financial crisis on cities in Europe” will be hosted by the Institute for European Urban Studies at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar from Thursday 4th December to Friday 5th December 2014. The conference seeks to promote an interdisciplinary debate that discusses regulatory restructurings under a new regime of austerity urbanism and reflects on the role of urban social movements struggling for progressive alternatives. In the first part of the conference we will bring in academics, practitioners, and political activists from Greece to share their research and experiences. In the second part, we will invite contributions from established academics, early career researchers, graduate students, critical governors, and political activists on a broad range of urban topics focused on but not limited to the regions most affected in Southern and Southeastern Europe.

NOVEMBER 28-30, Florence > New Generations Festival

November 29th and 30th – From 11:30 to 18:30

moderators: Indira van’t Klooster (Editor in Chief A10) – Jason Hilgefort (L+CC)

Economic sustainability is a key concern to architects (and many otherprofessionals). How many times have we been trying to figure out a sustainable model to our business plan? How many ideas would we like to convert into a project, without knowing how to proceed?

Since the beginning of the financial crisis this issue has been tackled either by following a clear and functional model or by using a creative approach. In any case, the sustainability of our business is becoming more and more important, and the boundaries among different disciplines are becoming less and less clear.

“Survive Style 4″ is an open event divided into 4 panels – each one of them will be followed by an open confrontation with the participants and the audience. Every panel will see the participation of one moderator and 4/6 international guests in an informal and open discussion.

26-28 NOVEMBRE, Paris > Jeunesses créatives au coeur des villes Européennes

du 26 au 28 novembre 2014 à Saint-Denis (France)


Les rencontres annuelles du réseau Banlieues d’Europe ont pour objectif de créer un espace de réflexion, de débats et d’échanges entre des jeunes européens (artistes, acteurs culturels, architectes, travailleurs sociaux et travailleurs du secteur de jeunesse) portant des initiatives artistiques et culturelles innovantes et participatives dans des quartiers populaires en France et en Europe.

Cofinancées par le programme européen « Jeunesse en action », dans le cadre du projet UrbART, ces rencontres impliquent sept partenaires européens ainsi que des partenaires locaux et nationaux engagés sur des thématiques telles que l’inclusion sociale des jeunes à travers des projets artistiques et culturels ; la participation des jeunes à la co-construction de la ville et des espaces publics ; les formes contemporaines d’engagement des jeunes dans la vie locale.

Pendant deux jours, une centaine de porteurs de projets artistiques, d’acteurs de la société civile, de chercheurs, de médias et de responsables de politiques publiques, travaillant à l’échelle locale, régionale, nationale et européenne seront réunis à Saint-Denis pour aborder ces sujets, échanger, se rencontrer, coopérer.

Beszámoló: Népszínház beszámoló

Népszínház utca is among the most controversial streets in Budapest. Traditionally the first stop of recent immigrants to the city, the street accommodates a variety of ethnic groups, without being able to profit from its cultural diversity. While the Teleki tér neighborhood has been improved with the establishment of new cultural and social spaces as well as with a new, community-designed public park, the commercial street’s fame is overshadowed by its neglected public spaces, derelict buildings, empty shops and tangible social conflicts.

OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 1, Berlin > Funding Urbanism Workshop

28th of October 2014 – 1st of November 2014
Deutsches Architektur Zentrum DAZ, Köpenicker Str. 48/49, 10179 Berlin-Mitte
Details at http://www.wonderland.cx
Contact Daniela Patti and Levente Polyak at projectspace[at]wonderland.cx


In the past decade, as an effect of the economic crisis and social movements, many actors in the architecture and planning fields recognized that traditional funding models lost their capacity to feed small-scale, community-oriented urban projects. While designers elaborated new methods to address problems of community, participation and ecology, they also created alliances with a new generation of developers, economists, as well as law specialists to experiment with new models for funding urbanism.

For Wonderlab Berlin, Wonderland invited protagonists of the new civic economy from various European cities to join the Funding Urbanism Berlin workshop: 4 days of site visits, presentations, debates and screenings, as well as an evolving exhibition.

Az IABR-ről a Magyar Építőművészetben (2014/8)

Rotterdami Építészeti Biennálé, 2014. május 29. – augusztus 24.


“A Biennálé alapgondolata, hogy a világ környezeti problémái a nagyvárosokban sűrűsödnek össze – a megoldásukat is a nagyvárosokban kell keresni: az energetikai átmenet, a klímaváltozás, a biodiverzitás és a természetes erőforrások kérdéseit várostervezési feladatként kell kezelni. Város és természet romantikus különválasztása egyébként sem fenntartható: az antropocén korban az ember tevékenysége olyan mértékben befolyásolja a földi atmoszférát, hogy nincs természet emberi beavatkozás nélkül, nincsen természetes egyensúly, amelyhez vissza lehetne térni.”
