The dynamically changing world requires us to revise our current lifestyle and design posing ever new challenges and questions. How will design respond to these changes and shifts in meanings? We are looking for solutions in such issues as sustainable architecture, urban greenery as infrastructure, architecture in the age of circular economy, health-oriented solutions.

These are the topics we are reviewing in our online meeting series #NEW TRENDS IN ARCHITECTURE, launched in March, in which we host top artists, researchers and designers who discuss how to implement change and what it brings, based on their own design practice and experience.

Through open, interdisciplinary online conversations, together we create the eponymous new trends. We invite you to be a part of them!


In the latest online meeting, which will take place already on September 27, 2022 at 1 pm, the guest will be an award-winning representative of the young generation of architects - Maciej Franta. The conversation will be broadcast live on A&B's YouTube channel and Facebook page. During the meeting there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
