THINK SPACE launches MONEY cycle and the first competition of the series - TERRITORIES
After two successful cycles, Zagreb Society of Architects organized the third edition of international series of concept based architectural competitions entitled Think Space. Insofar, the programme hosted a number of established architects and curators and it continues to re-think space in the 2013|2014 season.
The new theme Think Space | MONEY [The Echo of Nothing] was devised by Ethel Baraona Pohl and César Reyes Nájera of dpr-barcelona, architects, writers, editors, publishers, bloggers and guest curators of the third cycle.
Throughout the new season of competitions and papers, Think Space will be looking for pioneering works at the intersection of architecture, sociology, economics, programming and marketing that radically challenge the fundamental spatial, social and urban relation based on capitalism. The competitions and Call for Papers will focus on territories, environment, culture and society through MONEY lenses, as observed by architects and other visual artists and professionals.
Jurors of the competitions are David Garcia |Territories, Pedro Gadanho |Culture & Society and Keller Easterling |Environment.
