IAAC has been invited to present its research projects at the XI Architectural Biennale of Bolivia in La Paz. This years Biennale had a very significant focus on sustainable architecture and emergent technologies, bringing together experts from Japan, Argentina, England or Spain, in a cycle of conferences that took place at different sites in La Paz, such as the “Colegio de Arquitectos de La Paz” building, or the San Francisco Museum.

IAAC was invited to give the closing lecture of the one week event. Areti Markopoulou and Tomas Diez, gave a conference about IAAC educational programs and research projects. The conference was followed by a long debate together with professionals and students.
