The 37th Architecture Salon was held in the Museum of Applied Arts in April of 2015 and was marked by the slogan AfirmAcijA (Affirmation) which pointed out the importance of the Architect – Architecture – Action /Affirmation connection. The Salon organisers’ aim was to display, reassess, encompass and affirm the complex field of modern architecture with its numerous contradictions and aspects, because architecture “makes” and “takes up” space and has a long-lasting effect on the quality of life and relationships between inhabitants, as well as on the appearance of the city itself.
The award in the category “Architecture – reconstruction” for the affirmation of interdependence of architectural space and program was won by Dijana Novaković, Aleksandra Nikitin, Maja Trbović and Dušan Nenadović for Facility “C” and Facility “D”, Terra Panonica experience point and Terra Panonica (2012-2014).
The number of works nominated for the 37th Architecture Salon was 306 in all categories. The jury included 127 of them into the official selection, out of which 83 were competing for awards and were divided into six categories.
Last weekend, on Saturday 28.03., the first meeting between the team members of “Terra Panonica” and local farmers took place on the estate of “Terra Panonica” in Mokrin.

The House of Ideas in Mokrin is hosting the Ethno-scribblings Workshop this week (February 16th-22nd). The workshop is a mix of the modern and the traditional – of the new brand Škrabac and My Creative House (Moja kreativna kuća) Association.
The idea behind the workshop is to combine old crafts with modern illustrations and produce, during these six days, jumpers and pillows by using embroidery, knitting and crochet. These garments and decorative objects will stand out by their design, for they will be adorned by the characteristic humorous motifs of the Škrabac brand and completed with interesting packages.
The workshop will be run by Ana Babić (Škrabac) i Nataša Đaković (My Creative House) with the participation of 12 women from Kikinda, Mokrin and Banatsko Veliko Selo.
During the last week of May 2014, in The House on the Flat Hill in Mokrin, the non-governmental organisation Architecture for Culture, in cooperation with the Architectural college of the Politecnico di Milano University, carried out the International Architectonic Workshop – The Rehabilitation of Abandoned and Dying Villages in Serbia. The goal of this workshop was finding new programmes, activities and solutions which could bring these settlements back to life.
According to the organisers, they chose this location for carrying out the workshop not simply because The House on the Flat Hill is situated in a rural surroundings, but because the Terra Panonica team also in a way deals with the topic of the workshop – the rehabilitation and repopulation of a village.
The mentors were Prof. Jelena Atanacković-Jeličić from the Department of Architecture and Urbanism of the Novi Sad Techological Sciences College, Prof. Oliviero Godi and assistant professors Marijana Zorić and Staša Radmilović from Politecnico di Milano University. The workshop was attended by 9 students from Serbia and 19 students from Italy, all of them from the universities mentioned above.
The Italian Embassy in Belgrade officially supported this event. To mark the occasion, the NGO Architecture for Culture became a member of the Association of Italian and Serbian Scientist and Scholars – AIS3, while the Terra Panonica team once again proved that The House on the Flat Hill indeed is a “House of Ideas”.
