The second International Conference with Exhibition
S.ARCH–2015, with the theme of “Environment and
Architecture” was held on 19–20 May 2015 at the
Maestral Resort, which is situated in the most beautiful
part of the Montenegrin coast, a romantic Rocky Bay,
just in the middle between the Old Town of Budva and
Sveti (Saint) Stefan. This year’s conference as

someone called it “exciting festival of architecture” ⎯
welcomed more than 150 participants from 26 countries
around the world. Star-architects from studios MVRDV,
ZAHA HADID Architects, JDS Architects and Idis Turato
Architects gave exciting and motivating keynote
speeches followed by interesting and provocative panel
discussions with conference’s participants.
As Winy Maas from MVRDV said, the S.ARCH conference
is the “supermarket of architecture come, serve

yourself and pick up what you are interested in”.
