Call for projects to counter climate crisis and its consequences through architecture
LINA, the European architecture platform, is helping architecture tackle the climate and environmental crisis. In its call for projects, LINA calls upon emerging architects and other creatives to share their ideas, projects, or practices that might help make the European Green Deal a reality. The programme, headed by Matevž Čelik and the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Ljubljana, is a continuation of the Future Architecture Platform.
The newly-minted network is an alliance of architectural museums, universities, research networks, foundations, triennials, biennials, and other architectural organisations: key players that can help big ideas reach the right ears. Through the call for projects, open until 12 September, representatives of these institutions will act as jurors to select 15 standout projects.
Selected authors, LINA fellows, will be invited to speak at the annual conference: the first will take place in Ljubljana. The programme will feature some of the most prominent thinkers in the field of architecture, the analysis of the State of the Architecture address, and a host of innovative ideas promoting the values of the European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus. In matchmaking events, LINA fellows and members will connect and decide on the best ways in which to feature selected projects in specific events of the LINA Architecture Programme.
The goal of the platform is to steer the architectural sector towards sustainable, circular and clean practices. As there exists a plethora of such initiatives, the platform connects and amplifies their efforts. Member institutions contribute to the LINA Architecture Programme with conferences, mentorship programs, workshops and various other events. Authors of the selected projects are invited to contribute: LINA highlights these new and emerging voices, giving them an international platform.
The LINA Architecture Programme will take place until the end of May, when the cycle will repeat itself with another Call for Projects, giving another opportunity to feature new projects and forward-thinking ideas.
