INTERNATIONAL BIENNALE OF ARCHITECTURE KRAKÓW 2015

15-16 October 2015 • ICE Krakow Congress Centre

   BIENNALE KEYNOTE:

Professor Jan Gehl, a world recognised expert in making the urban spaces more human-friendly, strongly believes that improvement of overall quality of life in the cities is derived from the appearance of their public spaces. For it is in the public spaces that people actually do meet up "to exchange ideas, trade or simply relax. The public area of the city – streets, squares and parks – is both a stage and a catalyst for these activities".

For decades a humanistic dimension in the process of developing cities has been missed out, forgotten, and altogether dismissed. Cars have invaded the cities in huge numbers effectively limiting living space for the residents, i.e. the space indispensable for the residents and visitors alike for actively participating in urban life. Despite numerous adversities, urban development continues to take place. A number of inspiring ideas have appeared that actually envisage moving away from the Modernist concept of urban development, frequently drawing upon the Aristotelian inspiration in their own vision of the new Classicism.

What the city of Kraków actually needs for shaping up its immediate future consists in granting due recognition to its unique history and rich architectural heritage.

Both domestic and foreign Biennale attendees bring tangible hope for an exchange of experiences, all with a view to broadening overall body of experience in the domain, and hope for this to become prospectively instrumental in eliminating any past spatial errors that are difficult to correct. This year's edition of the MBA Kraków 2015 is to be dedicated to the key issues of urban spaces and their overall accessibility to the city residents. It offers an opportunity to pursuing open public discourse on the specific architectural needs of the city of Kraków, in due consideration of its unique history and rich architectural heritage. Principal focus of this year's edition therefore rests firmly upon HUMAN DIMENSION OF URBAN SPACE.

 

All Biennale attendees are expected to volunteer and contribute a diversity of points of view and forms of expression, well anchored within the topical issue, while duly taking into account the following issues:

A new dimension of design of a city

A city full of life and bustle

A safe city

A sustainable city

A healthy city

A pedestrian-friendly city

A city of better designed urban spaces

A city of better architecture

 

The anticipated outcome of the Biennale is also construed as a more involved community striving to create and develop better quality public spaces, not only in terms of their practical advantages, but also in terms of their overall aesthetic and emotional appeal, frequently of key significance for their ultimate public endorsement as human-friendly urban spaces.

The aforementioned emotional and aesthetic experience of urban space, its positive impact on overall quality of life, physical and intellectual development of man, is also closely linked to the quality of architecture which actually defines public spaces.

The new edition of the Biennale and the accompanying architectural exhibition is meant to inspire reflection and stir up our imagination in the process of designing more beautiful cities.
