DaNS – Association of Novi Sad Architects is launching the open call for submissions to the 21st Salon of Architecture Novi Sad, which will take place from the 29th of September until the 6th of October 2018.

This year’s Salon will follow the concept which was mapped out during its previous edition in 2016, when the focus was incorporating the international orientation in the very identity of the Salon, more specifically the one which concerns our closest surroundings and common cultural space. Therefore, participants with works from Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Hungary and Romania are equal competitors for the Salon’s prizes. The Salon of Architecture Novi Sad wishes to present the current state of the architectural practice of the region which has been determined in this way, so as to create better conditions for the comparison of the current state of architecture developed in local scenes which often rests on common heritage. The results of these scenes have been different for a long period of time, but that is exactly why it is important and necessary to nurture the place of their continued encounter and evaluation which is the Salon of Architecture Novi Sad.
