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 seventh event of the tour, we will “visit” Lithuania and Ukraine and meet two of its most relevant architects.
On Wednesday, January 27th, 2021 live from 19:00 to 20:30 EET (18:00 CET Berlin time) the two following 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.
