On Wednesday 8 March at the Onassis Cultural Centre’s large auditorium the éso conference will take place for the sixth consecutive year. The éso conference gathers yearly the most important representatives of the Hellenic creative scene, and is established as the leading institution of design arts projection in Greece.
In 2017, the lectures show the ways with which professionals in the design field managed to stand against difficulties and adversities, by capitalising on experience from “easier” eras and turning to specialization areas with growing demand. Original material regarding the design of hosting infrastructure, architectural branding, and specific requirements of buildings, will be presented at the conference.
Additionally, future unexpected opportunities of a continuously broadening market for contemporary visual communication will be highlighted.
At the 2017 éso the following guest speakers will discuss their work: Dimitris and Liana Potiropoulos (Potiropoulos Architects), Giannis Douridas (R.C.TECH), Joost Frijda (GFRA Architects), designer Dimitris Papazoglou, Ria Vogiatzi (ELASTIC Architects), Eleni Brasinika
(Bllend) and Tasos Georgantzis (Urban Soul Project). The conference welcomes a special presentation by Zetta Kotsioni and Dimitris Kolonis, lead architects at Zaha Hadid Architects about Zaha Hadid’s vision and the continuation of the practice after the recent loss of its charismatic founding persona.
Coordinators of the 6th éso conference: Stavros Martinos (Editor-in Chief, Archisearch.gr and director of ARKKI school of architecture for children and youth) and architect Magda Sgouridi.
The éso conference is organized by Archisearch.gr and +DESIGN.
