Starting in November 2020, we will take a Virtual World Tour and “visit” selected countries around the world to meet some of their most relevant architects. Now that we can not meet you and our speakers at a fully booked auditorium, we will bring the speakers directly to your homes and offices! 

At our fourth event of the tour, we will “visit” France and meet two of its most remarkable architects.

On Tuesday, December 8th, 2020 live from 19:00 to 20:30 CET, Berlin time, the two French architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, not a word may be lost about their projects.
