Lectures

Prishtina Architecture Week is organized by the Kosovo Architecture Foundation in close partnership with the Municipality of Prishtina and the Future Architecture Platform. PAW is an annual event and its main objective is to present to the local architecture community and the general public the contemporary theories and methodologies in the field of architecture and urban planning.

This year the PAW theme is “Inclusivity” and KAF has invited a number of renowned architects and planners from around the world to showcase their innovative concepts and work tackling the numerous problems of today’s contemporary city. With numerous activities such as lectures, workshops, exhibitions, screenings and competitions PAW will yet again turn Prishtina into the regional exchange hub for methodologies, experience, architectural and urban experimentation. For the first time this year the Architecture Week will also organize activities in Fushë Kosova and Prizren.
