In summer 2015, 14 European architectural institutions from 13 different countries came together to launch the Future Architecture Platform. The goal of this association is to bring the innovations, experiments and ideas of a new generation of architects and planners up for discussion and to network these internationally. For this purpose, the platform itself provides digital communication channels, which are additionally enhanced by each individual member. By means of workshops, exhibitions, conferences, lectures and books, complex issues regarding how the living environment is to be shaped in the future are discussed at the platform’s individual institutions all throughout Europe.
The Future Architecture platform is a well-balanced ecosystem of European cultural players in architecture who perform specific roles within a complex European architecture program. It connects multi-disciplinary emerging talents to high profile institutions like museums, galleries, publishing houses, biennials, and festivals. It provides talented conceptual thinkers and practitioners in architecture with opportunities to speak up – and be seen and heard.
The Future Architecture Platform is the biggest pan-European architecture & design platform with 28 biggest architecture events and institutions from 23 countries of the continent as their members. Kosovo Architecture Foundation is one of the founding members of the platform and our director Bekim Ramku serves as the board member of the platform since its beginning.
