With an overwhelming number of architecture and design events around the globe, the Bustler team is on a mission to highlight the most noteworthy festivals, biennales, expos, exhibitions, and more that are relevant to professionals, students, and any diehard architecture enthusiast.
The fall season is a time of focus, when students head back to school and working folks gear up for the last few months of the year. The next few months will be full of opportunities that can perhaps provide refreshing perspectives on architectural practice and design, whether it's discussing the importance of design competitions at a conference, visiting a student exhibition, or touring a brand new building designed by a famous firm. So start planning ahead with Bustler’s latest master list of upcoming — and a few ongoing — events for fall 2019!
The space and structure of cities, creative development and regeneration, new building methods and technology, sustainable urban environments, city governance, and new forms of solidarity: these are the central issues of the contemporary urban generation. Seoul is a global city where these issues coalesce in both a particular and universal fashion. It is for these reasons that the Seoul Metropolitan Government announces the launching of a new biennale of architecture and urbanism.
“Beauty Matters: The Resurgence of Beauty” is the topic for the next Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2019. Beauty is part of the neurobiological structure that makes us not only happier, but healthier. The first buds of a new interest in aesthetics are emerging in architectural discourse. This cultural shift returns us towards the individual’s role in generating fresh knowledge; its importance in decision making is coming to the fore in many disciplines, breathing new life into the status of aesthetics and beauty.
The 2019 Biennial, “…and other such stories”, will be led by Yesomi Umolu as Artistic Director in collaboration with curator and educator Sepake Angiama and architect and urbanist Paulo Tavares. Presenting practices and projects that include building, design, planning, visual art, policymaking, pedagogy, research, and activism, among others, …and other such stories embraces architecture as an expansive practice that crosses disciplines and scales; engages a broad spectrum of spatial practitioners and publics; and functions across diverse sociopolitical and cultural registers.
Ministry for All pairs architect Carla Juaçaba (Rio de Janeiro, 1976) and artist Marcelo Cidade (São Paulo, 1979) in an indirect collaboration that exposes the physical infrastructures of Storefront’s gallery space in order to comment on the social and political foundations of the built environment. This site-specific installation, created entirely with Storefront’s existing infrastructural elements, undresses the gallery’s iconic facade to acknowledge the theatricality and vulnerability of architecture.
The Los Angeles Schools is a collection of work and statements from the community of architecture students in Los Angeles. While the plethora of schools that exist in Los Angeles is incomparable they do indeed rarely have an opportunity to come together to speak even louder, allowing them to speak beyond their own walls and stand for what the city of Los Angeles will be in the generations to come. The exhibition features the work of students from LA’s premier Architecture Schools: Cal Poly LA Metro, SCI-Arc, USC School of Architecture, UCLA Architecture and Urban Design
For 72 days, Toronto and surrounding areas will be transformed by free exhibitions, talks, and performances that reﬂect our local context while engaging with the most pressing issues of our time. The inaugural Biennial will present over 100 works by Canadian, Indigenous, and International artists installed at more than 10 sites on or near Toronto's waterfront.
First Wave, Nouvelle Vague, Third Wave, Next Wave, New Wave, No Wave. Waves have long been used as metaphors for movements and cohorts that mark moments in culture. The Architectural League’s Beaux Arts Ball 2019: WAVE will celebrate these generative and transformative forces of waves.
Putting laudatory celebration to one side, how do contemporary architects look back to the Bauhaus—as a myth, as a model, as a warning, or as a mere episode among the many comprising twentieth-century modernism? Bringing Los Angeles- and Berlin-based architects together for an afternoon of conversation, Bauhaus Looking Forward seeks to identify past challenges and possibilities that might be recognized as present among current practices.

FOOD: Bigger than the Plate explores how innovative individuals, communities and organizations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food.

Focusing on the theme “50 Forward; 50 Back”, the Congress will explore the most significant advancements in tall buildings and cities from the last 50 years, whilst inquiring into the future of our cities 50 years from now. This event thus represents a critical reflection on both the skyscraper typology, and urban development as a whole, by marking their trajectory to date, and considering the evolutions that must take place to accommodate a dynamic and uncertain global future.

Sharjah Architecture Triennial is the first major platform for architecture and urbanism in the Middle East, North and East Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. The inaugural theme is “Rights of Future Generations”.
