Friday, 31 March

9 AM–Midgnight

LOBBY and La Térmica invite you to our ‘Amphibious Habitats’ Conference, Exhibition and Party in the sunny and unforgettable coastal city of Málaga, Spain. Come mingle with the local creative scene as we celebrate the closing of our international design competition with a day of talks, presentations, prizes and music in true LOBBY style.

From morning to night, we’ll be dipping our feet in all things amphibian. We’ll be starting with our guest speakers and their fantastic presentations, and continuing all the way through to our exhibition and presentation of shortlisted models and drawings. A panel of international critics will be selecting the winning projects, leading to our grand finale: prizes, drinks, food and live, Spanish music. We promise an event as unique as the venue itself, where guests will revel in La Termica’s beautiful interior courtyard, bathed in sunlight during the day and brilliantly lit at night.

All welcome!

RSVP here.
