This year the 36th Salon of Architecture will be held in the Museum of Applied Art and it will last from March 26 to April 30, 2014. Great jubilee – fortieth anniversary of the establishment of the Salon of Architecture (1974-2014) will mark the event. The mission of the Salon in all the past years was to focus on the role and significance architecture has in development of a society, on plurality and quality of architectural responses and building standards as well as on the alternative and research ideas and projects. Besides highlighting architectural and urban design practices pursued here, the Salon was since its establishment a venue offering opportunities for sharing local, regional and global experience.
The follow up programme of the Salon will include presentations of guests from the country and abroad as well as of issues of significance for both the architecture and the society. A special part of the programme will be focused on the exhibition documenting the development of the Salon of Architecture and representing the awarded works in the period 1974 – 2014.
