MAP offers unprecedented access to our city architecture & heritage through guided visits and tours to specially selected building or old quarters, some of them conducted by specialist on architecture, heritage, city development, local festivities, and religious architecture.
Specially designed educational activities will also fill up October with learning opportunities for children and families in the fields of Architecture and Art.

MAP highlights the key role that architecture & art play in cultural, urban and social development.
The MAP question is simple: What role does architecture and art play in shaping a better city, better lives and better futures? And, how public is the public space?
