The favorite event of architects and designers – the twenty-first Night of Architecture and Design – will take place on Thursday, June 22, 2023 from 4:00 p.m. in the premises of the Faculty of Architecture and Design of STU in Bratislava.
This multi-genre platform provides the public with an insight into what is happening at the largest faculty in Slovakia, which provides education in the fields of architecture and design. During the „Night“, the entire FAD STU building is transformed into a landscape full of students‘ studio works on display, in order to show the wide range of projects created on the faculty grounds during the last semester. The organizers of the event – the STU Faculty of Architecture and Design, the Archtung association and the FAD Student Platform – offer visitors a range of other attractive accompanying events.
The summer edition of this popular and highly attended event will start with the announcement of the FAD STU Dean’s Award for the best student works for the ending academic year 2022/2023. Visitors can then view the exhibition of awarded works in room no. 6. on the ground floor of the building. The main lecture of the event will be dedicated to the Numen/For use studio as well as the phenomenon of ephemeral architecture. This Austrian-Croatian studio, which operated under the banner For Use until 1999, creates in the field of conceptual art, scenography, industrial and spatial design.
At the Night of Architecture and Design, we will welcome Christoph Katzler, who is behind this significant together with designers Sven Jonek and Nikola Radeljković. Radical reduction, experiments in various synergistic projects are characteristic of this studio. Visitors could experience their interactive network installation Tubo in 2021 in Bratislava’s Stara Tržnica. An aerial walk through the space offered a unique experience of playing with perspective, the human body and interaction in conjunction with a new perception of architecture. Also this year, they are preparing the Tape project for Tržnica, which can be seen as a continuation of their previous site-specific installation.
