The Forum turned the tables on traditional one-way conference models by giving individual delegates the opportunity to exchange ideas and contribute to the discussions. Leading local and international speakers had been specifically chosen from a variety of backgrounds, from start-up entrepreneurs to established corporate leaders, from key public sector figures to cultural pacesetters. They had been specifically briefed to challenge conventions and propose pioneering ideas as the world moves through a particularly challenging period.

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.
