Event description
Greek architect Eva Kosvyra will speak on her experiences at the historic site of Meteora.

About this Event

With current focus on the living aspects of heritage, SPGH and the Modern Greek Studies Program of Georgetown University present the work and experiences of Eva Kosvyra, a young Greek architect who has been living and working in the rocks of Meteora, a unique geographical phenomenon in Thessaly, Greece, whose very name means "suspended in the air" and is the site of a complex of Greek Orthodox monasteries second in importance only to Mt. Athos.

Ms. Kosvyra, a native of the region, begun by studying the construction of the first Meteora hermitages as a graduate student and progressively became one with not only the geographical and architectural, but also the spiritual realities of the site that she calls "so exposed yet also so protected."

SPGH and Georgetown's Modern Greek Studies Program welcome the opportunity of sharing in the experiences of a person who has born and raised near a treasure of Greek heritage, made a career centered around the monument, and who is becoming herself part of the monument's life and everlasting narrative.

Dress code: Jacket and tie for gentlemen, business attire for ladies

Event will take place at Georgetown University's Mortara Center for International Studies, located at 3600 N St NW.
