Milano Arch Week
Directed by Stefano Boeri with the support of Politecnico di Milano
Don't miss the fourth edition of Milano Arch Week, the event dedicated to architecture, urban transformations, spaces for citizenship and the future of cities. This year’s event focuses on the female perspective on space – urban and non-urban – investigating its potential and limits with respect to the epoch-making challenges of our time. Among the confirmed guests – who will give lectures in person and/or in live streaming – Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Izaskun Chinchilla, Odile Decq, Elizabeth Diller, Lina Ghotmeh, Steven Holl, Anupama Kundoo, Momoyo Kaijima, Martha Thorne, Benedetta Tagliabue, and Arjun Appadurai. Architects, town planners, researchers and designers will be involved through talks, lectures, and workshops to build a post-pandemic imaginary through architecture.
This year’s Milano Arch Week will also be enhanced by a series of meetings on the Milan 2020 adaptation strategy – covering the restart of the city of Milan in the wake of Covid-19, with some immediate or scheduled actions – as part of Milano Urban Center - Idee per Milano 2020, curated by the winning groups of the Urban Factor call of Milan Urban Center. Focusing on the people, the needs, rights and aspirations of those who live in cities, regions and communities: the new edition of About a City edited by the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation invites us to rethink the places where we live in the aftermath of the crisis. It covers three areas: school, including knowledge and experiences for the growth and development of boys and girls and young adults; the right to housing and unprecedented forms of coexistence; imaginaries, to think about new transformative tensions in the cities and places where we live, giving voice to the aspirations of young people and communities.
