BRAND NEW WORLD CONFERENCE / ARCHITECTURE DAY / SERBIAN INNOVATION SESSION – SPACE DESIGN

After great success from last year’s “Belgrade Innovation Session”, which included the city’s top urban planers, politicians, developers, architects and entrepreneurs together on stage for a very first time, BDW now produces its first ever ”Serbian Innovation Sessions”. Its a premier showcase for leading Serbian creatives to present their most contemporary developments and projects that are changing the face of Belgrade, Serbia and the world.

The sessions are planned to become a fixture at future BDW conferences, in order to gather the creme-de-la-creme of our country’s movers and shakers, who live both in Serbia and abroad, and open a public debate between those leading Serbian creative minds of the 21st century and the famously passionate BDW public, who, to make for an even bigger challenge, are voting LIVE for the best lecturer among them.

Running in the morning through the city (down what the germans call a fussgangerzone) and being amazed by all the grand empty old buildings that reminded me of my Berlin beginnings. Grafitti on buildings. Lovely broken walls with acne'd facades from decades of reverse engineering. Discovering that all the ships on the river were party boats and open till the morning. Sweating so much in one of the clubs, my phone got messed up. Losing phone in said club. Visiting belgrade police station to report a then stolen phone to a twenty-something cop with a doctor's lab coat, listening to Rammstein (loudly) while hacking out my report on a pre-electric typewriter that looked (and sounded) as if it was from some era before typewriters were invented.   Thinking of Naked Lunch. Thinking of Die-Hard. Listening to architects talk about porous facades. Thinking of old smart bombs. Imagining the flash and crunch of several floors of reinforced concrete collapsing in on themselves. Wondering why I'm the only interactive guy here. Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade? Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade?!
