The new segment of this year’s Balkan Architectural Biennale is an exhibition of design, which combines interior design, furniture manufacturing, design and industrial design. The focus is on the personal vision of designers regarding the current situation in the Balkans and individual sensibilities in interior design.
Some of the goals of this year’s BAB’s are connecting scholars , professionals and architectural bureaus, through the exchange of experiences, expanding and promoting new ideas that would lead to an overall improvement of the architectural scene. The realization of the exhibition and presentation of juried works would impact on the competitiveness and quality of future realized architectural and urban ventures in the region.
