FLUENCIES & PASSAGES
Multimedia & interactive architecture show
Accept our invitation and be present, between June 6 to 13, in the Pedestrian Passage from the University, in Bucharest, for an architecture break! Whether you’re an architect or an architecture enthusiast or just curious to know more about this field, or you just find yourself passing through the passage, stop for a moment in an unconventional setting for reading and relaxing!
In the Pedestrian Passage from the University, for an entire week, we organize a series of events that put architecture in the spotlight! We like to think that through this event the architects, but also the general public, will have the opportunity to interact with quality architecture in an unconventional space that helps us convey the idea of having to stop, even for a moment, in this world that is always in motion.
Thus, in the very center of the busy city we will create a relaxing environment, to reflect on a series of fluencies (influences, confluences, tributaries) that marks contemporary architecture and situate Romania in a complex intercultural exchange that occurs in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. We want thus to contribute to valuing a public space as well. A space characterized by a distinct cultural dynamics and a constant influx of people.
During the event you will be able to see the international architecture exhibition Fluencies (a critical approach of the Central and Eastern European architecture), to dialogue with Romanian and foreign architects, to browse magazines, books and albums of architecture. In addition, you can relax watching architectural movies. You’ll be able to meet the architects Alex Adam, Roger Pop, Mario Kuibus, Adrian Soare, Marius Miclaus, Silviu Aldea and others.
So come in the Pedestrian Passage of the University during June 6 to 13 and connect to the architecture with attitude!

National and International Architecture Exhibitions at the “Fluencies” International Arhitext Festival
7-9 October, Timişoara
The International Arhitext Festival is organized by Arhitext design Foundation in partnership with Ordinul Arhitectilor din Romania.
Throughout the 3 days of the Arhitext Festival Fluencies, four exhibitions will be inaugurated in Timisoara, dedicated to quality national and international architecture, as well as to the promotion and support of art and architecture students and young professionals.
Thus, some of the events taking place during the Festival include:
The international Fluencies Exhibition – more than 50 projects built in Central and Eastern European countries, divided in 3 sections: Con-Fluencies, A-fluencies, In-fluencies – curator Bogdan Ghiu.
The projects for this exhibition were selected further to an international open call which was answered by architects and architecture studios from all over Central and Eastern Europe, as well as from the numerous quality projects from this area featured over time in the pages of “Arhitext” magazine. Thus, the exhibition represents a point of great attraction for local and international architecture professionals. Its interest also resides in the fact that, in addition to the richly illustrated descriptions of the architectural projects, it comes with a theoretical part which incorporates such projects in the main theme and presents the comments made by foreign critics. The exhibition will be supplemented by the Catalogue of the Fluencies International Festival, which will be bilingual and disseminated internationally.
The Arhitext design Awards exhibition (PAD 2011) – dedicated to quality Romanian architecture. The projects included in the exhibition are divided in 5 sections (residential architecture, public architecture, exterior arrangement works, interior arrangement works and restoration works) and present quality Romanian architecture projects and the latest trends (projects built in the last two years). The PAD 1993- 2009 exhibition will be featured next to the PAD 2011 exhibition and will cover the winning projects of all editions that have taken place so far, in all sections.
The Dare! Exhibition This exhibition consists in the coherent presentation of the students’ projects that won the 2010 and 2011 editions of the Dare! Competition. The projects entered in the 2010 and 2011 competitions, as well as the 5 winning projects of the first edition may be seen online at www.arhitext-indrazneste.blogspot.com
Trans-architectures Exhibition. The exhibition consists in the presentation in the form of exhibition boards of the works/installations/objects created by the student and artist teams during the Trans-architectures Summer School held at Dealu Frumos in July 2011.
During the Festival, in addition to these exhibitions, there will also take place the PAD 2011 award festivity, conferences, debates and round tables bringing together Romanian and foreign architects and cultural personalities.

The open call for projects addresses professional architects, urban planners, designers or architectural studios, urban planning studios or design studios which must be based in any of the Eastern or Central European countries. The Call for papers addresses professional architects, urban planners, designers or architectural studios, urban planning studios or design studios which must be based in any of the Eastern or Central European countries (Albany, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Germany, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldavia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine.)
