GREAT - Greek Architectural Talent is a cooperation between Athens Concert Hall and HERACLES GCCo, member of Lafarge Group, for the promotion of Greek architectural creation. This initiative focuses on the Greek architectural talent and the innovation that springs from this and it attempts to enhance its appeal to the international architectural scene.
With a great pleasure, we present you the 41 final projects, selected by GREAT 2013 jury, to be exhibited in Athens Concert Hall from 21st May to June 9th 2013.
