The Timiș Territorial Branch of the Romanian Order of Architects organizes the 2018 Timișoara architecture biennial BETA. BETA consists of a series of actions, events, projects and exhibitions, structured on three pillars: education, profession and city. The 2018 BETA competition is the main event of the profession pillar, which supports and promotes quality architecture in all its forms and manifestations, being conceived as a relational interface both within the profession and between the profession and the socio-cultural environment in which it operates.
The competition has an euroregional character, being open to the DKMT euroregion, as well as to the three neighboring countries: Romania, Hungary and Serbia.
The competition’s organization in this format is based on the contextual similarities throughout the euroregion, thus encouraging a larger-scale participation and contributing to the creation of a multilateral dialogue about the future of the profession.
