Panel “Leisure architecture revisited _ 1”
Popular destinations in the countryside are being built more and more, with their environment constantly changing. Their anthropogeography evolves: new “nomads” residents change the usual operation of the community, while locals interact with new representations and relationships. Unplanned construction remains preferable by investors and offers architects a field to instill the most mature form of their experiences in new buildings.
Simultaneously, settlements have unused real estate, while there is a need to examine which conditions require renovation or reinvention of infrastructure. In this panel, we follow the latest creations in leisure architecture and discuss the future of it in the countryside. Interesting ideas and developments worth discovering and discussing.

Panel “What is luxury?”
Trends change. What is luxury today in the countryside, and how is it defined in the city? A villa with a pool that maximizes the permitted construction of the plot or minimal living in a virgin landscape? A vertical villa in an apartment building or a house with a garden? Realities such as lack of space, priorities such as sustainability, and needs such as the balance of privacy and socialization give multiplicity to the definition.

Panel “Profiling Investors & Architects”
Who are the new investors? Why do they choose Greece, and what are their expectations? How do the international perceptions of a specific social class align with historical preservation? Also to be discussed: 1. The significance of Greek institutional investors in the real estate sector. 2. To what extent is the influx of foreign capital from institutional investors of other countries happening right now and expected to increase in the future? What are the reasons this might not be happening to the extent that it could? What’s the role of the investment grade? 3. What problems do institutional investors face? (bureaucracy, increased borrowing costs, lack of product, etc.) 4. What are institutional investors currently looking to buy, and with what criteria? 5. What is the role of design? 6. What is the role of climate change or underpopulation?

Panel “Βlueprint for tomorrow’s office”
In an architectural adventure in the Mediterranean region, we dare to rethink office buildings like never before. The mission of architects is to create sustainable refuges that cultivate well-being and increase productivity. The Mediterranean climate – whose charm is at risk due to climate change – requires smart designs with high adaptability to changing environmental conditions. Adaptability in interior design is also demanded by dynamically evolving work models.
The new offices are located in business zones as well as in the lively heart of the city, becoming a composite element of the urban fabric and our reality. How do we design for these?

From Cities for Cars to Cities for People.
Green Mobility by KOSMORIDE
For a century, we’ve loved our cars. But they haven’t loved us back. Our obsession with them has a huge toll on public health, the environment, public space, accessibility. To meet the challenges of the 21st century, our cities need a new vision. And we need a new mobility mindset.”
