Międzynarodowy Biennale Architektury Kraków 2019

Thursday 21 February 2019

The City of Kraków and the Association of Polish Architects SARP are cordially inviting to take part in the International Biennale of Architecture, MBA Kraków 2019, which shall take place on the 8th - 9th October 2019 at the ICE Congress Centre in Kraków. The Biennale of Architecture in Kraków is a cyclical event and the title of this edition is CONNECTIONS - the Town and the River”.

As the role of the historic European city centres changes, from an industrial base to a recreational, cultural and educational role, the situation of the urban rivers changes as well. It is also the case of Kraków, whose architecture is an important part of the historic heritage and the Old Town is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Vistula River running through Kraków, was once the central artery of transportation for the urban economy. That has changed. The river now gives the city a major recreational quality, with calm waters and green banks. Could this relationship between the city and its river now be reinterpreted, could it be given a stronger connection, a boost with new facilities, some new life and new functions, a new significance for the whole urban environment?
