New Generations Festival

Milan
Nov 28, 2013 — Nov 29, 2013
The “New Generations Festival” will be one of the high point of a research project led in 2012 and 2013 by Itinerant Office.

The main objective of the New Generations Festival in Milan is to create the conditions for a real encounter that is extremely important to improve bonding and collaboration among different professionals. Organizing three days of opportunities for sharing, debates and mutual exchange, involving a local community (the city of Milan) and the network of people that has been following the New Generations Platform during the last year, we set the basis for a sustainable cooperation among various components.

The new Generations research analyzes the impact of the financial crisis on young European architects, with a series of video interviews to a selection of 36 young architectural practices.

The crisis has radically changed the approach and profession of the architect. The increasingly unstable situation, is suggesting the rethinking of the role of the architect within society.

The main idea behind the New Generations Festival, spread throughout the activities organized during the three days event, is to build a network composed by different innovators, with the objectives of sharing ideas and inventive experiences. With this goal, it seems essential to make the debate wider and deeper, sharing and branching out to other fields of actions: architecture and design as much as other creative activities. Debating new working models, the production and dissemination of culture, and the centrality of the territory in contemporary society.

The initiatives of the festival will be free and accessible to the audience. The majority of the activities (workshops, round tables, debates…) will be organized at the “Fabbrica del Vapore”, in the space of “La Cattedrale” , a late XIX century factory owned by the municipality of Milan and use to organizing cultural events. Here, many creative talents from different countries will spend three days together, being the protagonists of a series of activities focused on collaboration and knowledge exchange.
