The goal is to challenge the field of architecture and promote critical thinking, inspire, engage and raise public awareness of how architecture and urban planning shape our lives and the world – and how our lives and the world affect the other way around. Architecture is not just bricks, spaces and frames. It's sensual, bodily and social. It is political, historical and psychological. The architecture is human and it affects every aspect of life.
CAF × Journal
CAFx Journal is the festival's digital journal and archive, which from 2021 examines architectural and urban challenges through a broad interdisciplinary optics. Architecture, like our common physical reality, is akin to a wide range of fields such as politics, science, humanities, sociology, art, philosophy, etc. All these interfaces make architecture a universal starting point for unfolding complex societal issues. CAFx Journal complements the festival's program with in-depth articles, film , references, etc., just as Journal disseminates independent contemporary relevant topics outside the festival's programme.
