About the programme Misli prostor / Think Space
The Think Space program aims to bring together world renown and established figures with emerging voices (students and professionals) within the fields of architecture, landscape, design, the arts and the humanities.
The four competitions developed under the theme of Borders, aim to produce a catalogue of contemporary conditions in social, political and cultural spheres in need of architectural alternatives. The international jurors define the competition briefs for participants:

Open call for the applications is soon to be announced, follow the news on the pages of the program.
The partner organization Lauba House provides the perfect place for the Think Space unconference. Austro-Hungarian military riding arena that was recently transformed into a gallery of contemporary art, will offer the participants of the event and encounter with contemporary visual art completely in line with the conceptual philosophy of the Think Space program.
The inspiring and artistic space of Lauba House where sessions and conversations will take place, will faciliate the exploration of the Borders and the interaction of participants in quest for conceptual space. Beyond the Borders un-conference is a forum to talk to peers, learn new things, and build new collaborative networks that will send the participants back to their practices energized and ready to re-think the space.
