Well, 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for architectural and design events. There will be many shows, festivals, expos and the like, and we are here to tell you what the best places are. Here are the biggest design events.
The 5th International Conference on Architecture & Built Environment
The place to be from May 22 to May 24 is Venice, Italy, because that is where the conference at which the top architectural minds discuss their impact on the cityscapes of the future is held.
The event will include a presentation, a workshop and many guest speakers. Attend it and see the winners of the amazing Conceptual Design and Completed Projects Competition.
AIA Conference On Architecture 2018
Less than a month later, June 21-23, in New York, you can have a chance to acquire various credit sessions like Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). These are just some of the educational benefits, as you will get acquainted with new techniques and materials used.
For the open-minded types, there is the unavoidable Burning Man, conducted in the temporary Black Rock City. Connoisseurs already know that Black Rock city is built and taken down every year in the Black Rock desert in Nevada.
A networking event at which you can break loose, the Burning Man doesn’t host just architects, but inventors, designers and businesspersons. This is a self-relying event, and the participants must rely on their famed Ten Principles, rules that govern the behavior, networking and self-expression at the event, making sure that everyone and everything is treated with respect.
The event will be held from August 23 until September 3. The journey of self-discovery awaits!
World Architecture Festival
As a contrast to the energy of the previous event, we feel it is our duty to bring you back down to earth to enjoy the World Architecture Festival in Amsterdam, November 28-30. The event is an opportunity to gain exposure and win prestigious awards and prizes, like the Small Project of the Year Prize, or the ‘Amsterdam’ Prize. According to their website, the winners can look forward to a Gala Dinner at the renowned and monumental wonder of architecture in Amsterdam, the Beurs van Berlage.
As this is a global event, with more than sixty countries represented, over 2500 attendees and 1100 projects to be presented, this is a chance for you to stand out, get a partner, sponsor and recognition.
Us By Night
Last, but not least, the unique 3-night experience in Antwerp, Belgium is for the adventurous souls who want to learn and have fun at the same time. The event will feature 70 keynote speakers, who will share their outlook on three stages. There will be illustrators, architects, graphic designers and many other artists.
Nearly five thousand guests are expected to appear, and, like the previous year, there will be the prominent Nightmarket. If you are not sure where to go on November 22, 23 and 24, feel free to pop over to Antwerp – you won’t be disappointed.
