The Biennale aims at rewriting the best productions of the young architects. However, it does not only record the works of an era, but it projects a number of works from a wider set as the most important ones, depicting the “stigma” of the two-year period. In this way, the Biennale is the expression of a modern architectural “style” from a particular point of view.

At this year’s 9th Biennale,  the visitor of the exhibition will be able to “read” the judges’ choices and their explanatory texts:
The EIA (Hellenic Institute of Architecture) has decided to upgrade the role of the selection committee, inviting important theorists and architects, to reflect on the submitted material and evaluate the projects of the exhibition.
The five-member committee consists of Elias Constantopoulos, President of the Hellenic Institute of Architecture and architects, Konstantina Kalfa, Theoni Xanthi, Panos Tsakopoulos and Kostas Tsiambaos.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
