BELGRADE DESIGN CONFERENCE / SMART STARS

On the day earlier, this morning and in two consecutive days over thirty (30!!!) leading creative superstars from over 20 nations flew in from London, Paris, Milan, Bologna, New York, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Ljubljana, Hannover, Vienna, Tel Aviv, Barcelona, Madrid, Frankfurt, copenhagen, Eindhoven, Berlin and rotterdam. We all finished our ‘wake-up’ double espressos and the heavenly mousse au chocolate cups with a strawberry in the amazing Zaplet design lounge, opened the curtains, and on this very rainy morning, the international creative conference smart squared could start.

The conference was announced by the founder and curator of bdw, Jovan Jelovac, followed by the official opening speech of the Head of the Municipality of Stari Grad, Ms. Mirjana Bozidarevic, who was the key partner helping bdw nestle in the Atelje 212 theater, the prime venue in her municipality. Thank you for this support, Mirjana!

It was great for xarchitekten to be invited to BDW as Austrian Architects We were expecting a great time by experiencing all this different thinking’s on design issues. At first there was the road movie from Vienna to Belgrade: 600 Kilometers of flat land, an immense impression of wideness - like riding on a green ocean. Arriving Belgrade we were hosted by the perfect Organization and accompanied by very nice people of BDW. The most valuable element of BDW´s Performing, Discussing, Lecturing in the Theater, Visiting the Clubs and Restaurants of Belgrade has been the linking excellent thinking and facing experts coming from different fields of design as well as different regions of Europe. xarchitekten are convinced about the great role of BDW as an Place for multidisciplinary Evolution, therefore BDW is facing a great future. Hopefully xarchitekten will be connected to BDW again.
