Unbuilt Architecture in Switzerland
Very few countries give their population such a far-reaching democratic right of co-determination in the realisation of architecture and urbanism as does Switzerland. While this has produced a democratically approved architecture that is unique in the world, it has also prevented numerous projects from becoming part of the country’s built history.
Whether lost, rejected, stalled or changed … there is a multitude of architectural designs that continue to be talked about to this day in Switzerland, even though they have never been executed.

LINA, the European architecture platform, is a network connecting prominent cultural players with emerging practitioners and thinkers in architecture. Its goal is to steer the architectural sector towards sustainable, circular and clean practices, to link the existing efforts into a united LINA Architecture Programme, and highlight new and emerging voices, giving them an international platform.

2023 LINA Conference:
Alliances for a Resourceful City
Presenting the second generation of featured LINA fellows
Each year, the 33 member organisations that make up LINA, the European Architecture Platform, gather in a new city. The LINA Conference is the focal event from which stems a wave of activities throughout the year: it’s where LINA fellows, up-and-coming talent selected at the open call, first get the chance to present themselves and their work. Over the course of 2 days, contacts are exchanged, ideas are pitched, and collaborations are formed. What follows are residencies, installations, research workshops, lectures, exhibitions, publications … taking place all around Europe.
The 2023 LINA Conference takes place in Copenhagen. The University of Ljubljana, which coordinates the platform, is organising it together with Copenhagen Architecture Festival and in partnership with the Royal Danish Academy. On the first day, the conference will present 28 LINA fellows, outstanding teams and individuals that were selected from among 550 applicants. The next day, Nick Axel (architect, editor, educator, curator) will present the annual State of Architecture address, followed by focus talks by Keller Easterling (designer, writer, educator), Camilla van Deurs (Chief City Architect for the City of Copenhagen), and Phil Ayres (architect, researcher, educator). These will respond to the theme of the conference, Alliances for a Resourceful City, which will be further developed in the roundtable, where speakers will be joined by Jutta Kastner (policy officer, European Commision).
The conference is open to the public, both in person and online.
