ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK is an annual international festival for architecture, which will have its next edition in September 30th - October 9th 2015 in Plovdiv. Launched in 2008 as a two-day conference under the name SOFIA ARCHITECTURE WEEK, the event expanded into a more than a week-long meeting and idea exchange platform for architecture, interior design, landscape and urban environment. Through stimulating a broad professional and public debate the festival aims at initiating sustainable social and architectural practices. The diverse and intense program features presentations, exhibitions, discussions, workshops, screenings and urban interventions as well as architectural workshops for the youngest.
Every year ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK focuses on a specific topic with a fresh curatorial team. Тhe 2016 topic is the citizen participation in the creation of the urban environment. The festival is curated by studioBASAR, a Bucharest-based architecture and research studio.
