The discussion ‘Experimentation in architecture’ aims to present the importance and possibilities of creative processes in architecture. In the event, mentors from the Experiments’ platform shared their views on contemporary challenges in architecture and their personal creative experiences. The conversation discusses experimentation in various spatial practices and the importance of integration of different disciplines in discovering new possibilities to understand and create environments in which we live.
