For the 2016 edition of the FORUM of ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK we have invited people from different parts of the world, who have experience in involving citizens in the design, creation and maintenance of the urban environment. Some of them are architects, others are academics, and we even have activists on board. Some will focus on the panelki type of neighbourhoods, others will talk about other examples of urban tissue. What they all have in common is that they not only believe, but have also proven that citizen participation is a valuable resource, which can contribute greatly for an urban environment of high quality.

The FORUM this year will last for two days, October 8th and 9th and will see the participation of 16 speakers from 3 different continents. Those lectures are the only paid part of ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK.

Moderator of the Forum will be Hristo Stankushev, co-curator of ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK 2014 and pattern at dontDIY.

Simultaneous translation will be provided during the Forum.
