An Architectural contest for graduate and post graduate students, from Greek schools of Architecture and Greek Students from foreign universities. An international jury will select the models to be exhibited in Athens Concert Hall. The curator of the exhibition, the architect Memos Filippidis, explains why "their first buildings" were selected as the theme of the first organization of Great.
Jury: Nikos Ktenàs, Manuel Aires Mateus and Selgas Cano comprise the international jury that will select the projects for the exhibition “Their First Buildings.” The common Mediterranean lineage of these judges and their consistent academic profile, assure their proximity with the works of students. Furthermore, the distinct profiles of these offices achieve a pluralism and summarize some of the most significant current developments: the austere orthogonal architecture with untreated concrete, the refined version of white minimalism articulated in extreme geometries and the innovative architecture rich in semi transparent and colorful materials.
GREAT – Greek Architectural Talent is a cooperation between Athens Concert Hall and HERACLES GCCo, member of Lafarge Group, for the promotion of Greek architectural creation. This initiative focuses on the Greek architectural talent and the innovation that springs from this and it attempts to enhance its appeal to the international architectural scene.
