Topic of ASK in 2017


  • Various 'discrepancies’ and 'pass-bys' are encountered on a daily basis. The discrepancy between the needs and the means, between the ideas and reality, between wishes and possibilities... Each faculty of architecture deals with specific topics and problems of their cities. The intention of ASK in this year is that the student would acquaint each other with their experience of local architecture and reality by answering the topic of the event. Numerous changes in the economy of our countries, wars and recovery from the wars brought about new challenges to architecture and urbanization of cities. Multitude of deserted structures and industrial complexes affected the cities and their environments. Renewal, revitalization, conversion of these units would considerably contribute to the advancement of each city. Numerous affirmed lecturers, along with the professors of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture of Niš, will give a number of lectures and workshops to the students, in order to acquaint them with their work and demonstrate good practice examples in problem solving.


    Architectural student congress (ASK) lasts for four days. It consists of two parts, a theoretical and a practical one. The theoretical part includes the lectures of affirmed local architects and professors. At the same time, the students themselves will have an opportunity to present their vision of a given issue. The practical part includes the workshop, where the students in groups will produce a concept of a design of a pedestrian zone in the center of Niš, after which each group will present their design.
