Aluminco promotes quality architecture and supports the promotion of the work of architects. In this context, it was one of the main sponsors of the lecture by the distinguished and award-winning Spanish architect Juan Herreros, held by DOMa, at the Benaki Museum’s Piraeus Street Amphitheatre on Monday 4 April 2022.
Aluminco, the Greek aluminium industry, has developed inextricable ties with the architectural community. It creates aluminium products with high quality characteristics that meet every application and highlight the work of architects and, in addition, responds to special orders when requested.
The trust that has developed between architectural engineers and the company is mutual. The architectural community trusts Aluminco because it offers great design flexibility, while Aluminco respects and supports the work of the architects by actively demonstrating its support. The recent action to support the architectural world, with the silver sponsorship of Juan Herreros’ lecture, is the culmination of its support actions.
The support of the architectural community is actively demonstrated by Aluminco, through its collaboration with the specialized magazine DOMa, which deals with the process of architectural design . Aluminco has been a long-standing supporter of the architectural world and the work of DOMa, as well as the magazine DOMES, launched in 2005, which aims to promote Greek architecture and organize the Greek Architecture Awards. In order to feed the public debate on contemporary architecture, DOMa organizes workshops addressed to the wider public, with the full support of Aluminco.
Furthermore, the close relationship that Aluminco has developed with architects is demonstrated by its ability to respond to specific design solutions , which may be requested. Customised solutions not only shape the specificity of a structure, but can “lift” it. Aluminco’s Skyline premium aluminum systems are a modern tool that meets the demanding and contemporary applications of architects.
