“Entrepreneurship is the process of recognizing opportunities and obtaining resources that leads to the creation of novelty”


S_FESTIN is the concluding event of theSTART category of a_ta 2014 and follows right after “Profession minus architecture”. Conceived as a participative process, it consists of a ROUND TABLE anda FEAST in immediate succession.

The aim of the event is to generate debates on important topics detached (or not) from the architectural object. These subjects are fairly important for the profession but discussions on them, while frequent in other professions or other creative industries, are rare and disorganized in architecture.

The ROUNDTABLE will bring together architects from Timişoara and from other cities in Romania, to dialogue openly about architectural offices. The discussion, moderated by arch. Adrian Soare (SYAA), will take into account subjects such as entrepreneurial strategies, communication, inter-professional relationships, collaborations with other professions, administration of an architectural office, architectural startup biographies, office identity, client oriented strategies etc. – these and many more will be publicly debated and can be the pretext for your questions.

The FEAST will end the evening and will generate the opportunity for informal talks between the audience, lecturers and participants on the topics raised at the round table.
