9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects
The results of the projects selection competition for the 9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects, have been announced.
Organised by the Hellenic Institute of Architecture, in the framework of activities for the development of contemporary Greek architecture, with ek magazine as Strategic partner, the events of the Biennale of Young Greek Architects aim for the collection of a representative sample of young architects activities, the emergence of new authors and the exchange of views on the development of architectural thought and production of architectural work in Greece today.
The Biennale accepts entries from architects up to 45 years old of materialized projects and non-materialized proposals, provided they correspond to real design assignments (including projects that have excelled in competitions). Submitting student work is not allowed. All entries will be exhibited and the selected projects will be presented in detail and will be published in a relevant catalogue issued by the Heliarch. At the same time, a workshop will be organized in the exhibition space, with invited speakers aimed at critical evaluation of all projects.
At this year’s Biennale, Heliarch decided to upgrade the role of the selection committee, inviting important theorists and architects, to reflect on the submitted material and evaluate the projects of the exhibition. In this way, visitors of the exhibition will be able to read both the judges’ choices and also their explanatory texts.
The five-member committee consists of Elias Constantopoulos, President of the Hellenic Institute of Architecture and architects, Konstantina Kalfa, Theoni Xanthi, Panos Tsakopoulos and Kostas Tsiambaos.
The exhibition will take place in Benaki Museum Piraeus St. Annexe, from 27 September – 25 November 2018, alongside the issuing of the catalogue. Inauguration: 26 September 2018, at 20:00.
