1. Laboratory

MOINOPOLIS is an international laboratory of thoughts on spatial matters and operates as an exchange platform.
Etymologically MOINOPOLIS is deriving from the Indo-European expression for exchange "moino" and the Ancient Greek word for city "polis". To this effect, the laboratory investigates multiple developments of space, predominantly in the urban context and communicates substantive positions, ideas, theories or equivalents through events, workshops and publications.

It explores contemporary issues related to society, culture, art, new technologies, urbanism and architecture and initiates new impulses for discussion by bringing together a diversity of creatives and researchers throughout various disciplines.

You are invited to submit a conclusive paper, a strong project, an insightful interview or even a manifesto. Every year a yearbook will be published as printed edition bringing together all positions of the laboratory.

2. Participation

The participation is open to contributors from a wide range of disciplines such as architecture, urbanism, sociology, scenography, design, geography and any related fields.
International professionals, young academics, students and creatives are invited to participate as individuals or in groups. Only one contribution is accepted per individual or group.

Contributions must consist of unpublished material.
