The Architekturwoche Basel (AWB) was held for the first time from 9–15 May 2022. This new biennial platform for architecture and urban development is an initiative of the Architektur Dialoge Foundation. Organized under artistic director Chrissie Muhr, the inaugural edition of AWB 2022 addresses the theme of “Reale Räume” (Real Spaces) – examining how globalization, digitalization, migration, climate change and the pandemic affect daily life in the urban spaces around us.
Featuring over 100 lectures, guided tours, workshops, exhibitions, films, concerts and performances, the programme is aimed at a broad public. The events took place in Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and neighbouring regions of France and Germany. The parallel Open House Basel event was also being staged again during the weekend of 14/15 May 2022.
“The AWB seeks to be a platform for all who are interested in architecture, sustainable building, circular economy, a hybrid mix of work and living, and the future of urban co-existence.”
