Architects visiting FAKRO participated in the special, practical activities during which they had a chance to learn about innovative solutions of roof windows' manufacturer. It was also an opportunity for discussion on the contest projects and listen to an interesting lecture on contemporary trends in the European architecture by editor in chief of A10 magazine - Indira van 't Klooster.
Participants of the conference had a chance of sightseeing the company from Nowy Sacz. During the visit they could see the entire manufacturing process, from design to final product.
A visit to Nowy Sacz region was also an occasion for them to see the first in Europe passive church built in Rownia Szaflarska. There were also other tourist attractions such as Salt Mine in Wieliczka and Orthodox Churches in Szczawnik and Powroznik. Despite the fact that the winter conditions were not of the best quality, architects managed to spend time actively by benefiting from the winter activities in the training and recreational centre in Activa Hotel in Muszyna. They took advantage of sledges, snow mobiles and quads.
Architects were really impressed by FAKRO Company and attractions accompanying the meeting as well as declared their participation in the next conference.
