Talks. Leave No one Behind | FAST

Due to reaching the full capacity of the original venue, a live stream will be organized at a second location at the Politehnica University Conference Center.


The Festival for Architecture Schools of Tomorrow connects and mobilizes, for the first time, the 5 architecture schools in Romania - Timișoara, Cluj, Oradea, Iași and Bucharest - and expands this cooperation network through the invited schools from neighboring countries. The first edition takes place in Timișoara, European Capital of Culture 2023. In focus: issues related to the Sustainable Development Goals of the 17th UIA World Congress: Sustainable Futures. Leave No One Behind.

The TALKS section fosters exchanges between the fields of architectural education and professional practice in Romania as well as current international methodologies and design approaches that focus on social environmental sustainability.  

The third day of the TALKS section will feature keynote speeches from the Director of Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, Professor Walter Angonese, followed by Mendrisio professor Quintus Miller of Miller Maranta. The closing panel of the evening will be dedicated to a debate on the future of  architectural education.
