New NEBinar episode #4 with Kristina Careva: City Acupuncture


The NEBinar Talks series showcases various aspects of the New European Bauhaus as an active concept for 21st-century architecture. The invited speakers, practising architects, lecturers, researchers, as well as other cultural professionals will ponder the application of the New European Bauhaus principles underlined by the motto “Beautiful, Sustainable, Together.” The focus is on developing a better understanding of education, qualification and practice in architecture and the related fields of urbanism, planning, landscape architecture, interior architecture, spatial arts, crafts and other disciplines in the built environment faced with the challenges of the European Green transformation envisaged as a cultural movement.

Discover the new NEBinar episode #4 with architect Kristina Careva and get more insights on City Acupuncture initiative started in 2009 within the Zagreb Society of Architects. 

'City Acupuncture' aims at improving social cohesion and general quality of city life by regenerating public spaces. The idea has 3 main pillars: small and precise interventions in the urban fabric can significantly improve urban life; such interventions should be designed in the interdisciplinary discourse; residents, NGOs, government structures and all other stakeholders must be involved in the process. City Acupuncture i is most often conducted in the form of interdisciplinary and participatory workshops with students and young professionals that are mentored through a carefully designed creative process, which includes different methods of public/citizen participation at key co-design stages. 

The conversation was moderated by Arch. Borys Czarakcziew, ACE Executive Board Member and Dr Waclaw Szarejko, from the Faculty of Architecture of the Wrocław University of Technology.
