International Convention of Architecture

7th of March 2015: International Convention of Architecture in Budapest

Our theme will be “l’architecture pour l’architecture”, focusing on the pieces with less function and more art, especially which designer and public are enthusiastic about.  We will examine, how architecture can improve urban and natural sites, e.g. the Varosliget of Budapest, where an international competition takes place.
