Call for projects and papers
For more than 20 years, The Arhitext Design Foundation has been developing editorial and cultural projects that raise awareness of the national and international state of architecture, urbanism, design and visual arts. The most important projects of the Foundation are the Arhitext Magazine and the Bucharest Triennale, dedicated to the Central and Eastern European region. In October 2019, the Foundation, in partnership with the Romanian Order of Architects and the “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism will organize the third edition of the Bucharest Triennale East Centric Architecture. The main topic of this edition, HOME|any|more|?, proposes an interrogative approach of the possibility of being at home in today’s world.
The president of the curatorial team of this edition is the writer, poet and translator Bogdan Ghiu. Some of the prestigious guests who already confirmed their participation this year are Sarah Robinson (USA / Italy), Marc Jay (Denmark), Eva Prats & Ricardo Flores (Flores & Prats Architects, Barcelona). The previous editions of the Triennale (2013, 2016) brought together renowned architects, professors and theorists, such as Svetlana Boym (Russia/SUA), Dietmar Feichtinger (Austria/France), Terunobu Fujimori (Japan), Barbara Holub (Austria), Robert Mair (Austria), Willem Jan Neutelings (Olanda), Juhani Pallasmaa (Finland), Alberto Pérez-Gómez (Canada/Mexico), Boris Podrecca (Austria), Sami Rintala (Norway), Vladimir Šlapeta (Czech Republic), Ana Maria Zahariade (Romania).

The two main events of the Triennale are the thematic exhibition HOME|any|more|? and the essay contest Critical Discourses. Two calls were launched in November 2018, open for practitioners and theorists concerned with the specific issues of this region.
