IDEA

This year Kaunas Architecture Festival (KAFe2016) theme is “Restart your city center”. This theme covers problematic of city center‘s restoration for the people lives and communities role in this process.

The decrease of city center‘s importance is a relevant issue nowadays. The residential construction‘s movement to the city suburbs stimulates people and their activities migration from the city center together displacing efforts and finances to create new infrastructures. These changes distract us from spaces situated in city center, we abandon and impoverish them. The urbanistic “cloth” revival of parts in the city center, it’s consolidation with new buildings, existing infrastructure’s utilization for new projects, the search of the innovative possibilities for public spaces and their historical preservation will form the main topics in this festival.

The target group of KAFe2016 – professionals of architecture and culture, students and all community of Kaunas. The more people will be informed about architecture and it’s “backstage”, the more a dialogue about architecture and urban development between different social groups will become fluent.

Planned activities during Kaunas Architecture Festival 2016 – lectures and discussions, exhibitions, educational events, creativity labs.
