Lithuania & Ukraine Livestream

Livestream | AnA | Andrė Baldišiūtė & Oleg Drozdov

Architects, not Architecture aims to bring to the stage what we normally don’t see. We invite well-known architects, who instead of talking about their award winning international projects, are asked to talk about themselves. They speak about their path, their influences and experiences, and dive deeper into their intellectual biography.

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. 

Andrė Baldišiūtė, DO Architects, Vilnius, Lithuania, www.doarchitects.lt
Oleg Drozdov, Drozdov Partners, Kharkiv, Ukraine, www.drozdov-partners.com
