Welcome to ARTKITEKTURA 2017, a Festival of Architecture and the Arts celebrating holistic approaches to architecture and the built environment. We invite designers and creative thinkers to engage the public and share ideas on design process, heritage, urban renewal, and life enhancing architecture.
We will explore the theme of Wholeness Through Architecture and the Arts through exhibitions, talks, workshops, artistic presentations and study tours.
ARTKITEKTURA 2017 is a CPD-accredited event.
We shape our buildings
and our buildings shape us
— Winston Churchill

ARCHITECTURE STEINER is a forward looking group of architects, designers, artists and friends inspired by the insights of philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Understanding Steiner’s ideas on architecture as a synthesis of the arts can contribute towards the shaping of more humane living environments.
