Architectural workshops organized as a student bottom-up venture, with twenty years tradition. Incoming edition’s theme is The Great Beauty and it will take place between October 14th and October 22nd, 2017 in Wrocław.
This year’s edition theme is The Great Beauty. It is a profound idea that we are reaching for both in our life and creative work.
The Vitruvian Triad as a fundament of architecture is known since classical times. Only modernists transposed Firmitas, Utilitas and Venustas into Structure, Function and Aesthetics. The Beauty (Venustas) as a pure value was reduced, substituted by lesser meanings and seems to be obliterated. Today, only a few are bold enough to speak openly about its significance in day–to–day practice. The Great Beauty is an idea that plays in the invisible part of the Platonic Cave.
