The market of the construction sector is looking forward with great interest to the events that will take place during the trade exhibition of BUILD EXPO GREECE 2021. These are events that focus on the most modern and hot topics of the market with answers from specialised executives and experts.

Achitects Talk

One of the main events of BUILD EXPO GREECE is expected to be the Architects Talk by Archisearch.gr. Some of the topics that this year’s Architects Talk will focus on are the issue of sustainability, the future of workspace, the need for a new approach to public space and the building materials sector in which Greece in particular emerges as a leading international player in exports. In this context, two special sections will be dedicated to Greek marble and aluminium. As part of the events, the leading architectural offices of the country will be present and will participate, presenting their views and experiences around the trends in hotels, residences, the invisible architecture, the future offices and storytelling design. As Vassilis Bartzokas, founder of Archisearch.gr, characteristically emphasises, Architects Talk is an institution that wants to accelerate or even inspire positive change.

Open Space

The Open Space events were a great success and attracted the interest of visitors as they focused on new trends, innovations and applications in the building industry. This year the workshops and case studies that will be presented will focus on topics such as zero energy buildings, fire protection, sustainability in buildings, as well as shading and facades and the role they play in the energy identity of the building. Through presentations and case studies of energy certified buildings, visitors will have the opportunity to be informed about the latest developments and new market demands. It is obvious that the Open Space events are becoming even more topical as a new Energy Efficiency Programme has already been announced and is expected to run in the near future, which is expected to give new life to the construction industry and to activities related to it.

Atelier Architects

In the context of BUILD EXPO GREECE 2021, the Hellenic Institute of Architecture organises a conference on: Atelier Architects 3. New roles in existing shells: Transforming the building stock. The event will focus on the changes taking place in our cities through their buildings and how they are transformed to accommodate new realities. Apartment buildings are being converted into hotels, office buildings into homes, crafts into shops: existing shells are being adapted to new uses, static requirements, fire safety, energy efficiency and functionality specifications. The third seminar of the Architecture Atelier aims to study the ways in which it is possible to reuse building shells in modern city centres and the degrees of difficulty during the development of studies, licensing procedures and construction. Eventually the new image and function of the buildings is reflected in the urban landscape, giving new correlations of uses and gradually changing its character.
