Optimistic Realism and Shared Autonomy: 5 Young Practices with New Visions

New Generations is a European platform that analyses the most innovative emerging practices at the European level, providing a new space for the exchange of knowledge and confrontation, theory, and production. Since 2013, New Generations has involved more than 300 practices in a diverse program of cultural activities, such as festivals, exhibitions, open calls, video-interviews, workshops, and experimental formats.

New Generations has launched a fresh new media platform, offering a unique space where emerging architects can meet, exchange ideas, get inspired, and collaborate. Recent projects, job opportunities, insights, news, and profiles will be published every day. The section ‘profiles’ provides a space to those who would like to join the network of emerging practices, and present themselves to the wide community of studios involved in the cultural agenda developed by New Generations.

ArchDaily and New Generations join forces! Every two weeks ArchDaily publishes a selection of studio profiles chosen from the platform of New Generations.

Working from a renovated barn, they aim at a double production: both physical and built, as much as intellectual and cultural. 2001 thinks and produces an architecture reduced to the essential, responding in a rational and coherent way to the urges and needs of contemporary society.

LAGADO architects define themselves as a serious studio for playful architecture. Founded by architects Maria Vasiloglou and Victor Verhagen in Rotterdam in 2011, the studio applies their fascination with user-centered design to a diverse range of projects that share a common playfulness combined with clear geometry and latent multifunctionality. Depending on the project, they operate as initiators, researchers and architects.
