The Critical Discourses competition is part of the 2019 Bucharest Triennale East Centric Architecture. It attempts to analyze the architectural and urban phenomenon of living and dwelling in the region – as historical becoming as well as contemporary situation – through an essay competition addressed both to professionals from the field of architecture and to those of related cultural fields – philosophy, art, sociology, anthropology etc. The contest aims to discover ideas and opinion makers, to outline original and challenging concepts and observations on the topic of living and dwelling today and tomorrow, and also to promote examples of quality architecture.
