Foksal 2, Warsaw, SARP Headquarters

The aim of the Architecture Festival is to recognise architectural achievements and those people who are passionately dedicated to designing the buildings and space that surround us. It is also an opportunity to examine the broad spectrum of issues related to spatial planning, including problems and barriers in the way of urban development. The Festival will feature discussion panels, presentations, case studies and workshops to give us a deeper insight into these topics.

But the Festival is not merely a conference – integration and networking are extremely important elements of the meeting. A networking and exhibition area is to be set up at the event and will include presentations of modern products and services.

This year the Festival of Architecture will form part of the 140th anniversary celebrations of the key architectural institution in Poland: the Association of Polish Architects – SARP. On this occasion our guests can look forward to the presence of the most distinguished luminaries of the architecture world.

Agenda

Suits on bikes (September 8th)

Conference (September 20th)

Exhibition (September 20th)

Workshops (September 20th)

As a taster for our upcoming Festival of Architecture, a bicycle ride is to take place along the streets of Warsaw two weeks before the conference – on September 8th, 2017.

THE IDEA

The idea behind the bike ride is to stimulate discussion between real estate and construction market players on the future of our cities. As the density of the development in large conurbations such as Warsaw and Kraków increases, residents’ transportation systems and quality of life are impacted. By getting up from out office desks and onto our bikes we will be able see the problems faced by those living in cities in practice. We will then discuss the infrastructural issues as well as the challenges that need to be met by urban planners – and together we will try to come up with conclusions about whether we should be expecting a transport meltdown to take place in a few years’ time, or if instead we will be living in friendly, healthy and attractive cities. The event has been devised to provide everyone with the opportunity to share their views on planning green areas, transport systems, access, walking and cycle paths.

Anyone can participate in the event and everyone who does so will be encouraged to share their views. We would particularly like to invite:

  • representatives of investors and building managers of new and future office projects, but who are also responsible for the amenities provided for the offices’ users (bicycle parking areas, bike sharing)
  • office tenants who travel to work everyday using the means of transport available to them
  • urban planners who have a genuine impact on the changing shape of cities
  • those attending the Festival of Architecture
  • anyone who is interested in the future of cities
  • THE PLAN

  • Start at 16:30 on September 8th
  • the two or three starting points will be located near selected office buildings and those participating will receive maps with the route indicated
  • bicycles will be provided at the starting points (it will also possible to ride your own bicycle)
  • each group will have a supervisor provided by the organiser, while each participant will be given a specific problem/task that will be discussed
  • the ride will finish on the Vistula embankment, where a meeting will be held with a representative of the City of Warsaw, who will discuss the city’s planned initiatives concerning cycle traffic, projects on the river, etc.
  • comments and conclusions from the ride will then be discussed in an informal atmosphere
  • Important: office clothes are welcome!

    A video recording will be made of the event to be viewed during the Festival of Architecture as an introduction to the discussion entitled: ‘Cities of the Future’.

    Date: September 8th

    Number of participants: app. 25–30 people

    ‘Deleted Warsaw’ is a unique project which uses VR technology and takes us to the 40-ties of the XX-th century. It gives an insight into what Warsaw would look like if it hadn’t been for the II World War. The application crowns long-lasting efforts of tracking down Warsaw buildings which were designed within the XX years of the interwar period. These building, due to the events that followed in 1939, were doomed.

    City of the future (Discussion)

    Copenhagen was the first European city which, in spite initial opposition, decided to limit road traffic. It was later followed by other cities, such as Vienna and Barcelona. Urban space has been returned to pedestrians. The high streets are busy again, while public transport and cyclists have also benefited. Investment in pedestrian traffic is cheaper for cities than much more costly road  infrastructure. Will Polish city centres also follow suit in the future?

    Accessible and friendly buildings (Discussion)

    Architectural obstacles for the disabled have always existed and they always will. In the past this problem was ignored, but nowadays the issue is not ‘whether’ but ‘how’? Certain norms now have to be fulfilled by each building, but some companies are going even beyond those. Skanska has adopted an innovative approach – together with the ‘Integration’ foundation it has established a new standard for buildings and audited the accessibility of the majority of its buildings. The Atrium 2 office building has already won the ‘Warsaw Project with no Barriers’ title and its next few projects are also undergoing the process of obtaining the certificate.

    Focus on shopping centres (Discussion)

    Each shopping centre must attract as many customers as possible. This goal will only be achieved if its role has been well planned and it is well designed. The customer can be attracted not only by an unlimited range of goods but also by good coffee and cakes or entertainment in the form of a cinema or a bowling alley. Shopping centres serve a city forming role in this way, activating the local community while supplying consumers with the goods they need. What to opt for and how to design a shopping centre for it integrate well with its surroundings and be the centre of attention.

    Luxury apartments in atmospheric tenement buildings or flats in a new building? (Discussion)

    Is it worth investing in apartments in old buildings? How to design apartments in such properties that meet the requirements of the most demanding clients? What do such clients expect? What are the pitfalls – and what advantages do they have over new buildings?

    Museum boom (Discussion)

    Investment costs for museums are comparable to those of building a modern office facility, but the results reflect the scale of the expenditure. Visitors are now offered something more than just stationary exhibits and a guide. Interactive installations and exhibitions have become the standard, while modern technology has displaced traditional forms of presentation. Museums – a treat for the architects.
