Milano Arch Week has published details of their 2019 event, hosting a week of lectures, conversations, workshops, and itineraries on the main challenges of contemporary urban transformation. Running from 21st to the 26th May 2019, Milano Arch Week “explores the future of architecture and cities through a polyphony of voices; architects, urban planners, landscape designers, scientists, philosophers, artists, and curators from all over the world.”
The busy and varied schedule throughout the week will include a talk titled “Reinventing Fire: Architecture and Energy in the Anthropocene” with guests including Stefano Boeri, and a conversation between Boeri and OMA founder Rem Koolhaas. Other prominent names engaging with talks and panels include Shigeru Ban, and Paola Antonelli, the Senior Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA.
Milano Arch Week 2019 investigates cities and architecture as systems of flows and networks; cities and architecture as integrated systems of artifice and nature; cities and architecture as places shaped by a plurality of subjects, individuals, trajectories; cities and architecture as places of material and immaterial production; cities and architecture as places where the human species has the opportunity to reverse the disasterous effects of climate change, by regenerating spaces and relations.
