About the Future Architecture Platform

Co-funded by the Europe Union's Creative Europe Programme, Future Architecture is the first pan-European platform of architecture museums, festivals, and producers, presenting ideas on the future of cities and architecture to the general public. Architektūros fondas joined the platfrom in 2019. 


Future Architecture is more than a competition. Future Architecture is changing the very foundation of architecture in Europe and beyond. Exploring boundaries. Breaking down walls. Building new systems. Forming new coalitions. Providing talented conceptual thinkers and practitioners with opportunities to speak up and to be seen and heard.
