Panel discussion

The recognition question. How to support young architects?

Growing cities, changing lifestyles, digitalization, new demands for housing, public spaces, social facilities — all this requires new generations of architects who look at the profession in a new way, have up-to-date skills and can respond to new challenges. Competitions and biennales, regional programmes aimed at supporting young professionals, hackathons and conferences are becoming increasingly popular and diverse.

  • What are the most common formats for working with young architects today? How effective are they?
  • What new skills do young architects need to train?
  • What new formats and tools are needed for the development of young architects? Who should commission and initiate such practices?
