The Critical Discourses competition is entering its final phase! Friday, 11 October, 10:00, at the palace of Mogoșoaia, the 12 nominees will present their essays in front of the eight-member jury presided by Sarah Robinson (see previous announcement). The jury will deliberate and announce the winners the same day.
The nominees for each of the two sections of the Critical Discourses Contest will be awarded prizes in the total amount of 3000 euros. The two winners of the contest will also receive 1000 euros in cash. All selected essays will be published in the Triennale catalogue.
The Critical Discourses competition is part of the 2019 Bucharest Triennale East Centric Architecture. It attempts to analyze the architectural and urban phenomenon of living and dwelling in the region – as historical becoming as well as contemporary situation – through an essay competition addressed both to professionals from the field of architecture and to those of related cultural fields – philosophy, art, sociology, anthropology etc. The contest aims to discover ideas and opinion makers, to outline original and challenging concepts and observations on the topic of living and dwelling today and tomorrow, and also to promote examples of quality architecture.
