YArch is an architectural two-week workshop based on a full time program during the summer period. The name YArch stands for Young Architects. YArch's aim is to visit a different city each year, with the ambition to study and propose architectural solutions according to the city itself. The workshop is open to architecture students, as well as students considering a career in architecture, and graduate architects. It can additionally offer a great approach to architecture for individuals who are interested in exploring an extended field of research. Furthermore, it is a great opportunity for lovers of architecture to create social and professional links.

It presents a challenging framework consisting of design workshops, field trips and seminars, debates on theory and application of construction technics and details. YArch emphasizes the importance of gaining experience, with the intention of bringing together students of all over the world, to collaborate with each other and work on the same project. Additionally, it gives the opportunity to students to explore the world of working with real life structures, from small objects to bigger scale.

Yarch presents a programme that is suggested for people who wish to introduce participants to their talents and work. YArch workshop organises a variety of one-day actions (YActions), in which participants could be taught a skill within the same framework of the workshop. YActors are self-assessed designers who wish to help and challenge participants to become familiar with their work. They have the opportunity to continually seek and stimulate their experiences with YAPs around them. Also, they could have the option to perform their work, in order to introduce it to YArch's attendees. YActors can form their performance space. Performances may be either spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned. YActions are self-organised events during some particular days within the workshop's period. Anyone who wishes to take part as a YActor, needs to assign a membership to the YArch community. Please contact us if you wish to share your talents.
