Online broadcasts available on our channels


What changes has the pandemic brought? What challenges do we have to face? We are launching a series of LIVE talks - #NEW TRENDS IN ARCHITECTURE with top designers who, based on their own design practice, will talk about how to implement changes, what they bring and what their balance is in urbanized spaces.

a period of great change

The last three years have been a period of great changes and shifts in meaning. We approach design differently, we discuss other problems. This can be seen in both global and our domestic debates about architecture or urban development. Pandemic - a very difficult time for many of us, has also brought positive changes. Sustainable architecture, urban greenery as infrastructure, architecture in the age of circular economy, health-oriented solutions are just some of the topics that have featured very strongly in the architectural discourse. In our new series of LIVE talks, we want to address and explore these new trends.

new series of LIVE talks

#NEW TRENDS IN ARCHITECTURE will host top designers who, based on their own design practice, will talk about how to implement changes, what they bring and what their balance is in urbanized spaces. In doing so, we are building a world based on values and quality solutions. We want to share them with our readers and audience, we want to help create new trends and explain why their implementation serves all users of space.

We invite everyone who feels this spirit of change and wants to be a part of it. Together we can all build a new quality in the architectural world.
