9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects

The Hellenic Institute of Architecture, in the context of its activities for the promotion of contemporary Greek architecture, organizes the exhibition of the 9th Biennale of Young Greek Architects. The opening will be held on Wednesday, the 26th of September at 8:00 pm and the exhibition will remain open to the public until the 25th of November.

The Biennale, one of the first activities of the Institute to be established in 1995, has since involved hundreds of architects, a generation apart.

The 9th Biennale is of particular interest since the works presented are, to some extent, an indicator of contemporary Greek architectural production during the period of severe economic crisis. 139 participations were submitted to the 9th Biennale, out of which 58 are implemented. The overwhelming majority of new buildings are scattered across mainland and island Greece, apart from large urban centers, some of them outside Greece as well.

This year's Biennale sought to expose the diverse viewpoints of the selection committee, inviting its members - Konstantina Kalfa, Elias Constantopoulos, Panos Tsakopoulos, Kostas Tsiambaos and Theoni Xanthi - to select individually the projects they considered most remarkable.

Due to the high overall quality of the participations, a total of 72 projects were selected, ranging from a minimum summer residence hut to a, thousands of acres, theme park. Approximately one third of the projects submitted are residential, while public and large-scale projects are absent, despite the large number of projects by young architects which have been distinguished in national and international competitions.

The curators of the exhibition are Christina Papadimitriou, Marianna Milioni, Elias Constantopoulos, and the design of the accompanying catalog is by Ioanna Kostika - finedesign.
