A few years ago a unique initiative originated in Poznan – the Element Talks conference. Created with an aim to provide designers with a platform where they could share their experiences, Element Talks has grown into a series of events – conferences and workshops – held nationwide to facilitate international exchanges inspiring not only for the design-savvy! Element Urban Talks, focused on cities and urban architecture, opens in Krakow on November 30. Tickets are now on sale!
Element Urban Talks, one of the events in the Element Talks series, is devoted exclusively to architecture and design, interior and landscape design included. The event consists of workshops, meetings, talks, and fair dedicated to the exploration of the social role of urban design. The previous edition was attended by 920 people!
From November 30 through December 2, we will be meeting in Nowohuckie Centrum Kultury to talk about socially responsible design and what we can do to practice it on an everyday basis. We will also think about and discuss the evolution of professions such as that of a designer, interior designer, or architect. This year, the EUT Program Director is trendwatcher Zuzanna Skalska; when it comes to distinguished guests delivering talks, we will listen to Fokke Moerel, the MVRDV Partner (the Bałtyk tower in Poznań is one of the projects recently finished by the studio), Przemo Łukasik from Medusagroup or Marcin Sadowski from JemsArchitekci. The event will invite discussions on a range of topics (how to design buildings and landscapes so that they can have a real impact on the environment; design advocates, what they do, and why we need them in our cities – on the example of London; how to build the best single family home and why it matters for sustainable design; who are the architects of the future), give us a chance to see inspiring, finished projects in the “WE’VE MADE IT!” section, and let us enjoy other highlights such as Speed Talks networking sessions, consultations with invited speakers, urban architecture walks organized by Niewidzialny Kraków, an afterparty, and many more! Come to Kraków, it’s worth it!
