We are very happy to announce this year’s topic of PDA – Piran Days of Architecture:
ARCHITECTURE IS CULTURE
Maja and her team have chosen another great topic and organized this year’s event/conference with all their love and passion for architecture (and Piran) – we’re quite sure that it will be another great success:
Nowadays nothing is ultimately won. Everything needs to be constantly fought for. Good architecture doesn’t come by itself although it is the most important part of social superstructure called culture. Architecture is not an economic activity pursuing the profit. It is more the enrichment of our society and brings sense to it. Good architecture doesn’t bring survival but rather life itself in its most precious form. We are aware of the meaning of the nature and we protect it yet most of our life is spent in the cities, settlements and buildings created by human being. Therefore it is important to be inspired by man-made enviroment just as much as nature inspires us. To create ambience, atmosphere and views that enrich our lives. Good architecture can do all that.
