Zagreb Society of Architects is pleased to announce the launch of the
new Think Space 2012 cycle with its annual theme PAST FORWARD.
Think Space 2012 - PAST FORWARD cycle devised by this year's guest
curator Adrian Lahoud, a former winner in the 2011 Borders Cycle, aims
to repeat three competitions that radically transformed architectural
culture: The Peak (1982), Yokohama Port Terminal (1995), and Blur
Building (1999), with participating architects in the original
competition acting as jurors in the current one: Zaha Hadid & Patrik
Schumacher (jurors for The Peak), Alejandro Zaera-Polo (juror for
Yokohama Port Terminal) and Ricardo Scofidio & Charles Renfro (juror
for the Blur Building).
At the conclusion of the competition, a conference in Zagreb, Croatia
will bring together participating architects from both cycles. At the
end of the competition phase, a further series of events will be
organized including a series of international exhibitions that will
display the original submissions alongside the winning competition
entries from this Think Space cycle. Storefront for Art and
Architecture will host the New York exhibition, with more events to be
