31th International Building Trade Exhibition
18-22 April 2012
Presenting Odooproject on the most popular building trade exhibition of Hungary
The most important and largest forum of the construction sector in Hungary – CONSTRUMA – is awaiting exhibitors this year for the 31st time.
Between the 18th and the 22nd of April, over 60000 visitors will arrive and visit 500 pavilons from 11 countries. You can meet Odooproject at two stands on the exhibition, one of these stands is our own, in building ?D? /the building includes exhibitors about the topic of utilization of alternative energy in the building industry/ at the 201/A1 place, where Odooproject will be located. The other stand belongs to our mediapartner Elektrotechnika, in building ?A? /the building includes exhibitors about the topic of new technologies and passive houses/ at the 105H stand, at that place, we will represent Solar Decathlon and Odooproject as well.
The hit topic of CONSTRUMA is still the environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions.
60% of all visitors arrived to the exhibition in 2010 for professional purposes, the other 40% was made up of private visitors. We believe this is a great chance to represent sustainability, Solar Decathlon and our Odooproject to professionals, entrepreneurs and the public.
WEEK OF CREATIVITY 2012 (Alkot?7)
Workshop and exhibition
16-20 April 2012
Odooproject hosts the most spectacular event on the ?Week of Creativity? workshop
The Week of Creativity is an annual week-long event of the Faculty of Architecture, BME, when all the architect students (from every year and class) -instead of regular courses- participate in unusual and creative workshops led by professionals and artists from different artistic fields. Each workshop is a one week project, based on a specific topic. During the week, the students create something palpable presenting their topic such as an installation, a video, or basically any kind of work of art.
At the end of this creative process, the collection of all these objects are shown in an exhibition held in the most representative scene of the university, the Main Hall, and on the gallery of every floor.
The workshop led by Odooproject will be held in the Main Hall during the whole week from the 16th to the 20th of April. In a short day, around 50 students assigned to our program, the team is full, work can start on the 16th of April!
The students will build the frame of Odoo house in real size, which will actually be the place of an other exhibition: the best works of the international urbanistic design contest: REA (Réseau des Écoles d?Architecture). This year it?s the 16th annual reunion of the Network of Educational Institutions of Architecture (REA), the annual topic is ?Sustainable redevelopment of historic city-centers in Europe.? Since it?s an international organisation, several visitors are expected from all over Europe. http://urb.bme.hu/reabudapest/
On the 20th of April, 11.a.m, the Week of Creativity Exhibition will be officially opened by the dean of the Faculty of Architecture, and hundreds of students of completely different faculties, professionals and journalists will visit us that day.
