Author: Mieke, Posted: November 18th, 2016

ArchPartys RdamAdam16Cocktails in the architecture practices of Europe
From 29 November to 2 December in Amsterdam+Rotterdam

ArchitectsParty, cocktails in the architecture practices of Europe, arrives in the Netherlands for the second time. From 29 November to 2 December the itinerant event gathers enthusiasts and sector professionals in famous practices based in Amsterdam and Rotterdam, making it possible to visit creative locations normally accessible only to a few and to make direct acquaintance with the architects and their works.

The seven practices involved in the Dutch event are all active both in Holland and abroad.

Four evenings and seven exclusive parties, which this year will also compete in the ArchitectsParty Award: guests can vote online for what they thought was the most fun evening, the most inspiring decor or the best dj set.

Calendar of ArchitectsParty | AMSTERDAM+ROTTERDAM:
Tuesday 29 November | Hilversum, C4ID
Wednesday 30 November | Amsterdam, Framework Studio
Thursday 1 December | Amsterdam, Mark Koehler Architects
Friday 2 December | Rotterdam, KOOL ontwerpers + Natrufied Architecture + Orange Architects | Studio OxL.

The ArchitectsParty cocktails will start at 7.00 p.m. (except that at C4ID which will start at 8.30 p.m.)

Lithuanian architecture in the spotlight

Author: Mieke, Posted: February 3rd, 2015

Lithuania
Land of the lush plains, meandering rivers and extensive forests. Therefore it's not surprising that the traditional architecture in Lithuania is wooden. Indeed, Lithuania of today is still rich with wooden architecture. A warm counterpart of the modern concrete, glass and steel structures that characterize contemporary architecture worldwide as also in present-day Lithuania.
 
To welcome Lithuania to the Eurozone, we hereby present you some great examples of modern architecture in Lithuania. From the brutalist architecture of Palace of Concerts and Sports to the wooden Rupert art center and the glass Baltic Hearts. These inspiring projects proof that Lithuania is not only the geographical centre of Europe *), but definitely one of the architectural hotspots of Europe as well.
