Architectural adventures


Architectural adventures – New places and investments

The second Conference for architects and interior designers on sustainable construction and furnishing of hotel and other tourist facilities will be held in Dubrovnik from 22 to 23 November 2019. During these two days, the participants will have the chance to meet world-renowned architects and experts who will share their experiences and the thrill of creating new spaces.

The Conference will be held as a part of the biggest regional fair dedicated to the furnishing of tourist facilities – Design District – that brings together more than a hundred renowned brands from the area of furniture and equipment for the interior and exterior.The Conference will be held in the famous place perfect for special events: the Valamar Lacroma hotel.


Conference topics, objectives and presenters

The topics are related to sustainable construction and furnishing of tourist facilities, new materials and shapes, while putting a special emphasis on ingenious projects that the audience may not have the chance to see live because of their everyday obligations.

The top experts in the field of architecture and design present a real challenge for the professionals, because they will be able to directly hear about the brave and unusual architectural projects that offer different perspectives and defy generally known rules, characteristics and styles.

The Conference objective is to take the audience to all those places and times that they would usually not get the chance to visit and inspire a different way of thinking when it comes to design – the way of thinking that ensures sustainability and beauty of the human space.
