New generations of European architects will gather to reflect on the future of the architect’s profession
New Generations Festival explores architecture and its relation with other disciplines. The festival, which has welcomed, in previous editions (Milan, 2013; Florence, 2014; Genoa, 2015; Rome, 2017; Warsaw, 2018) more than 5,000 participating architects, designers, students, local authority representatives and research institutes, will be hosted in the Museo MACRO | Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma for its fifth edition.
Entitled “ATLAS of emerging practices”, the event will gather more than 20 international young designers to reflect on the future of the profession of architecture. With a compact program of workshops, roundtables, and public presentations, the event spotlights three main themes: “Organisation”, “Business”, and “Media”. These three themes structure the publication “ATLAS of emerging practices: being an architect in the 21st century”, edited and curated by Gianpiero Venturini, which will be presented on September 7th at 5pm. ATLAS is the result of two years of research that analyses the work of over 100 emerging European architecture studios, to provide useful tools and insight for architecture students, new graduates, and emerging practices in the early stages of their career.
In addition, the Festival includes several activities such as the “Speaking Corner”,which will take place on September 6th, from 4pm to 7.30pm, in the laboratory of the museum. The event consists in a series of short talks with the involvement of more than 10 international participants such as Traumnovelle(BE), Angelo Renna (NL/IT),Lagado Architects (NL), Co.arch studio (IT), and STUDIOD3R (DE). Every morning of the Festival, from 10.30am to 1.30pm, a group of selected studios will be involved in the workshop “ATLAS”. Participants will investigate the three main themes, through informal debates, round tables, and practical exercises.What’s more, inside the MACRO Museum, there will be a “Reading Room”, a site-specific installation by deltastudio, which will encompass a reading area. A selection of unreleased publications, magazines and architecture books created by the participants of the New Generations’ network will be on display. Titles include: “01” by Fala Atelier, “MOINOPOLIS” by STUDIOD3R, Amplifying Nature byCentrala, Monkey Factor by Angelo Renna, among others.
