Arch Points 2016: the first 3-day event in Greece that suggested a different approach on how the public interprets, interacts and engages with the world of architecture! archpoints.gr
Concept, Artistic Direction
51 ARCHITECTS // 17 STUDIOS // 3 DAYS // INTERACTIVE EXHIBITIONS // CONVERSATIONS // EVENTS // GUIDED WALKING TOURS // HAPPENINGS // SPECIAL ACTIVITIES
ARCH POINTS stands as a "starting point" of an interactive presentation between Greek contemporary architects who live and work in Athens, Greece, and the public. 17 arch studios open the doors of their creative spaces and welcome the public in order to share with us their past, current and upcoming projects, their passions and dreams, as well as their vissions for urban Athens in the future. Several different Athenian neighborhoods become 17 points on the city map, which comprises our route, and welcomes anyone to join us in an open walk in which we will explore the hidden corners of Athens. ArchPoints focuses on the known or unknown architectonical and urban treasures of the city, which are forwarded to the public through live presentations, open lectures, events and other happenings. Our main goal is to promote Athens as a city that changes constantly and slowly becomes a green, modern and welcoming city!
