Projects selected for the exhibition

99 projects from 22 countries were selected to be showcased in the main exhibition “Drifting Architecture”, at the 2016 edition of East Centric Architecture Triennale.



The selection was done considering 214 projects realized in the East and Central Europeean region in the past 3 years by a curatorial team led by curator Bogdan Ghiu.

The selection of projects followed a comprehensive critical vision through „Drifting Architecture” theme while the sections of the main thematic exhibition will provide a three dimensional journey going through East and Central European architecture. The aim is to find a sense and to give an interpretation to the architecture of the region, in a grounded theoretical, historical and cultural approach. The projects received at the open call illustrated the spatial dimension of the concept “Drifting”, which is not aestheticized, discursive, political, social or economic, but rather a flow-through all these fields, a simultaneous closeness and deviation in order to retrieve a consistent and significant body of connections and landmarks.

Drifting Architecture will be exhibited in the Media Foyer of the iconic National Theatre in Bucharest from September 16th until October 9th. The Drifting Architecture exhibition will be accompanied by an opening event and a series of conferences held by renowned Japanese architect and historian, Fujimori Terunobu, and Romanian architect and theoretician Ioan Andreescu. All selected projects will be published in the Triennale’s catalogue.
