he 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)

A bicycle ride along the streets of Warsaw, which will inaugurate the Festival of Architecture, is to take place less than two weeks before the conference i.e. on the 8th of September 2017.

CONCEPT OF THE RIDE

The aim of the ride is active inclusion of real estate and construction market representatives in discussions about the future of cities. The density of large conurbations such as Warsaw or Kraków is increasing, which affects residents’ transport and comfort. By leaving office desks we will face city problems in practice, we will discuss infrastructural issues as well as challenges which need to be faced by urban planners and we will try to jointly answer the question whether we can expect a transport disaster or perhaps we will be living in friendly, healthy and aesthetic cities in a few years time? The project is meant to provide everyone with an opportunity to share their opinion with regard to planning green areas, transport, access, walking and cycle paths.
Everyone can participate in the meeting and everyone can share their opinion. We particularly invite:
– representatives of investors and building managers who build new projects and plan next ones but also take care of amenities for office users (bicycle parking areas, bike sharing);
– office tenants who come to work using available means of transport on everyday basis;
– urban planners who have a real influence on changing the shape of cities;
– participants of the Festival of Architecture;
– everyone who is not indifferent to the future of cities.

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?

– Start at 16:30 on the 8th of September
– There will be two or three starting points near selected office buildings as well as various routes (participants will receive maps with an indicated route).
– Bicycles will be prepared at the starting points, they will be made available to participants (it is also possible to ride your own bicycle).
– Each group will be looked after by a carer arranged by the organizer.
– Participants will be provided with a concrete problem/task which should be discussed.
– The ride will finish on the Vistula Embankment, where a meeting will be held with a representative of the municipality of Warsaw who will discuss planned activities concerning bike traffic, projects on the Vistula River, etc.
– Remarks and conclusions from the ride will also be discussed in an informal atmosphere which facilitates an exchange of opinions.

Important: office clothes are welcome!

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

Date: the 8th of September
Length of the route: app. 5 km
Number of participants: app. 25-30 people
Timeframe of the ride: 16:30-17:30
Meeting on the Embankment: 17:30-23:00

Miasto przyszłości (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?

Budynki przyjazne i dostępne (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.

Centrum handlowe w centrum uwagi (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.

Luksusowy apartament w kamienicy z duszą czy apartament w nowym budownictwie (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?

Boom na muzea (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.
