The theme of the Conference will be the "Classroom for the future". We are interested in "How Changing Classroom Design Could Change Learning".
We will seek Answers to the Questions raised by new Paradigms in the Classrooms which are under the influence of constant technological progress.
Parallel with the Conference we will also organise a competition for the selection of the best realizations from the field "Objects for Education" (facility / interior) and announce the winners who will be invited to present the awarded projects at the conference.

Friday 02.02. 2018
Conference »ARHIED« (Architecture + Education) will be held at Hotel & SPA resort "Terme Zreče".



Together with the professional part in the form of lectures and round tables we will also organize a social part of the event. The event is an opportunity to establish personal contact and exchange of experiences with the common goal of better quality in designing our living space and to promote good architecture. Such meetings had already in the past proved to be an excellent platform for the creation and strengthening of business relations.

The response to the event in the past was very good. In the period of 7 years Summit brought together a large number of architects who are expected to participate again.

"Open Ski Championship", means that the circle of participants can be spread from authorized architects and landscape architects on a wider pool of experts who are all involved in the creating and designing of our space.
