Jury conferences

Located at the intersection between EDUCATION, PROFESSION and CITY, the first three jury conferences will focus especially on the theoretical and critical research of architecture.

The conferences will have as starting point the activity and current concerns of the 3 members of the jury in the directions set out by the categories judged within the BETA 2016 competition, namely: Graduation projects, Architectural Visions and Architectural Text.

The three presentations held by Ștefan Ghenciulescu, Ivan Kucina and Zsolt Vasáros, addressed both to those who work in the architectural and urban planning fields and those working in related fields, will be followed by an open discussion session.
