Update 2020 European Architecture Programme
Whilst we are still happily looking back at the successful 2020 Creative Exchange at MAO Slovenia in February, Future Architecture Platform is also planning ahead. Currently, an international health crisis is affecting the entire world. Future Architecture Platform is monitoring the developments regarding the outbreak of COVID-19, together with our beloved platform members all over Europe.Unfortunately, the outbreak has consequences for the 2020 European Architecture Programme. This means that instead of announcing the full calendar of the program today, we’re currently reviewing all activities and, together with our members, we are creating a new schedule by exploring the possibilities of shifting the public events-based programme to more virtual activities. It is hard to predict how the situation will develop in the upcoming period, but we will continue to follow this closely and keep you updated as much as we can. Make sure to check the programme on the Future Architecture Platform website regularly for the latest status updates. For now, we hope you all stay safe and let’s connect over our love for architecture.
