This year Design Biotop was challenging the perception that inhabitants of the city of Ljubljana have of their own city and works to change perspectives on what it was, what it is, and what it could be. These challenges have been tackled by Future Architecture participants: Juuso Koponen, Jonatan Hildén, Shareen Elnaschie, Kimberly Pelkofsky and Paolo Patelli. .

The workshop started with a one-day open lecture event, with Future Architecture selected participants presenting their views and experiences together with local case studies related to the way culture, values and beliefs can limit or define the way we perceive common futures. The project continued the next day, when participants worked together in multidisciplinary cross-sector teams to confront the questions highlighted during the lecture day.

The participatory workshop took place from 21 and 25 September and concluded with many short pitch-format presentations on the last day, where all the participants were given a space to present their team outcomes together with what they learned as individuals. The wind-up event is open to the public, where existing teams included the visiting audience to participate with their feedback, opinions and ideas. Following the event, Design Biotop published an open-source document with all important information and results of the event.
