ABOUT

Room 18 is a programme for the exploration of the architecture of hospitality today with a view to re-thinking and the generation of ideas which will revise the current givens in the tourism sector. Now that we have passed through the period of standardisation and uniformity, we are in search of variety and individuation which will respond to the special needs of the contemporary traveller, but with an awareness of the limitations which he poses. The programme consists of four interacting actions:

ORGANISATION

DOMÈS, through its multi-faceted activities, serves as a point of contact between Greek and international architectural reality. Its aim is the briefing of Greek architects and the broader public with such interests on the latest trends in architecture internationally, but also on the promotion of Greek architectural production throughout the world.
