8th Biennale of Young Greek Architects
The Benaki Museum is hosting the 8th Biennale of Young Greek Architects and launches on September 17th of 2015 a two-month period of activities that will run from September 18th through November 8th of 2015.
The 8th Biennale of Young Greek Architects is taking place at one of the most critical periods of contemporary Greek history.
This year’s 214 participants, during the crisis, are encouraging, as they are demonstrate a continuing interest on the part of young Greek architects towards the institution of the Biennale, an important stepping stone for the wider promotion of architecture.
In this sense, this Biennale is a barometer which records, not just new presences with interesting projects, but more importantly it indicates the more general directions and trends of contemporary Greek architecture.
The selection committee has chosen 59 overall projects, half of which are built while the other half are not.
