The Summit of Architects, Urbanists and Designers ArchEurasia 2021 starts in Ekaterinburg

The Summit of Architects, Urbanists and Designers "ArchEurasia 2021" will be opened on December 13-15, 2021, as the final event of the XVI season of the International Prize for Architecture and Design "Eurasian Prize". 

Being distanced from the influence of ideologies and sectoral lobbying pressures, the “ArchEurasia” invites open and free discussion involving all stakeholders - architects, designers, urbanists, popular bloggers, cultural scientists, philosophers, sociologists, technology companies, academic and multidisciplinary institutions, public officials and social movements, as well as students and active citizens.

The focus of attention is the city as a constructor of the future. Discussions will take place in several directions: a city as a cultural landscape, a city and a healthy environment, a city of equal opportunities, a city of heritage, a city as a technology, a city as a design product, a city in motion and new urban mobility.

The outstanding architects and designers will participate in the Summit programme ‘ArchEurasia 2021’:
