Conference: 9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects

Conference: 9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects

The Hellenic Institute of Architecture organizes, with the co-operation of Benaki Museum and ek magazine as strategic partner, a Conference in the context of the 9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects taking place on Friday, 2 November 2018 at the Auditorium of the Benaki Museum/ Piraeus 138.

The conference will comprise two sessions: in the first session, architects and representatives of the Biennale sponsors will give talks; in the second session, members of the jury will converse with architects whose work has been distinguished in the Biennale.

The aim of this event is to give an opportunity to young architects to present their architectural concerns in relation to the contemporary era. EIA aspires thus to contribute to a dialogue on architecture and the city by tracing the thoughts of young creators.
