Croatian architects at the Swiss University ETH
8. November 2007

At the international conference held on November 8 and 9, 2007 at the prestigious ETH University in Zurich, some of the participants will be Croatian architects: Saša Begović, a partner in 3LHD, Aleksandar Laslo, prof. Karin Šerman (from the University of Architecture in Zagreb) and theoretician Maroje Mrduljaš. The topic of the conference is "Culture of leisure and architecture in East and West Europe during the 1960s, 1970s and today". The main goal is to draw attention to the social, political and ideological implications of the concept of "leisure" and how such things are expressed in architecture and art. Our architects will hold a series of lectures and present Croatian architectural projects from the past as well as several examples of tourism-related projects completed in the past few years.  Within this conference architect Saša Begović will hold a lecture titled "Three projects on tourism and leisure" and present new projects from 3LHD studio (Hotel Lone/Rovinj, Riva/Split,study Bale/Vale). The initiators of this conference are the Chair for Theory of Architecture professor Ăkos Moravinszky, Dr and professor Bernhard Langer. ETH University in Zurich holds the 5th place of the world's best universities (Harvard University being the top one). Its reputation is additionally strengthened by the fact that five of its alumni won the Nobel Prize. Due to that, presentation of Croatian architects at this international conference is a great professional recognition for them.
