THEME LAUNCH: WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ARCHITECTURAL SPACE?


Political, programmatic  and economic choices define our reality. Who is really in charge of architecture at the current moment? This leading role is deeply mystified.

Do urban planners, theorists, architects and even politicians have the same impact on our built world?
The urgent need for solving problems and use opportunities produces solutions that
do not take care of fundamental value of human space.
Is there a moment in architectural debate to truly talk about and discuss those questions?

120 Hours wants to invite students from all corners of the the world to share their ideas on those key questions.
We want to provide an arena to help them escape from the legislative world.
We want to trigger a reflection on timeless values, a reflection on pure architecture.
