The topics of the biennial are intended to solve specific problems. As such, the founders of the biennial have studied buildings from the period of transformation that followed the fall of the Soviet Union, talked about the capricious architecture found in Tbilisi, and studied the needs of the people living in the city, namely, what is necessary to create appropriate and desirable living spaces for them.
The gathering includes lectures, workshops, urban architectural installations, city tours, film screenings, and performances. The biennial hosts leading architects, scientists, and artists from both Georgia and around the world.
The biennial has also announced an international competition, which any interested architect, artist, or urbanist can enter for free.
The entries in this competition will be judged by a jury of representatives from the partner organizations of the biennial, Pavilion of Culture (Ukraine), Dekabristen e.V. (Germany), Transmedia Akademie Hellerau e.V. (Germany), Mies van der Rohe Foundation (Spain), Kotor Apps (Montenegro), Barleti Universiteti (Albania), and Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa (Portugal), and invited experts.
