The European platform LINA (Learn, Interact and Network in Architecture) is a network connecting relevant institutions with emerging practitioners and thinkers who work at the intersection of architecture and other fields related to spatial culture: it aims to promote up-and-coming talent. LINA’s goal is to steer design and building processes towards regenerative practices and principles of de-growth in line with the values of the European Green Deal. 

A growing alliance of museums, universities, research networks, foundations, triennials, biennials, and other European and Mediterranean organisations—LINA members—carries out a series of events taking place all over Europe. The LINA Architecture Programme is supported by the European Union within the eligible countries of the Creative Europe Programme. 

Each year, LINA organises an Open Call. Emerging practices are invited to apply with a project. If selected, individuals and teams behind these projects are invited to become LINA fellows and to collaborate with LINA members

DAI-SAI is a member of LINA, and its From care to cure and back programme curated by Ana Dana Beroš, explores critical architectural heritage, depletion of human communities in relation to abandoned architecture, and encourages transformation of both material and immaterial environments from “spaces of a common disease” into places of “common healing”. The LINA fellows Rebeka Bratož Gornik and Joaquin Mora expand their knowledge in investigations of architecture with pioneering imagination of sociality and spatiality through the medium of film. The focus of the research is The Children’s Maritime Health Resort of Military Insured Persons, an architectural masterpiece built in 1965 near Makarska, by the enigmatic architect Rikard Marasović, and communities around it.

The meeting in Pula, at the Gallery of DAI-SAI, 27-29 April, 2023, brings the selected LINA creatives together with curators, film critics and architecture historians, together with the art organization mART from Makarska into a “performative workshop”. More Info here.
