Exhibiting architecture has been a practice used by architects since the beginning of modernity. Lately, it can be considered not only an occasion for displaying end products and bold ideas, but also an appropriate environment and a creative process that allows exploration and learning, questioning, debating within the presence of different levels of encounters between the professionals and the public.

Their concentration on the borders would help bring together the lakes with the rest of the territory, while leaving the heart of the area mostly untouched. History is present in a symbolic way, becoming a resource for the future and a memorable experience.

The “Say Clay” workshop represents a continuation of the previous exploration conducted in Jimbolia in the Think Brick workshop. While the focus of the previous workshop was on the application of the finished ceramic module – a brick, which is widely available in the Banat region, the focus of this workshop is placed on making an actual clay product.
