Milano Arch Week is the international architecture festival, organized by Politecnico di Milano, Comune di Milano and Triennale Milano, in collaboration with Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. The festival, lasting 5 days, has brought to Milan the most important names of the international architectural scene, with over 170 events at the Triennale, as well as itineraries and visits around the city.
In response to the themes investigated by the XXII International Triennale Broken Nature: Design takes on Human Survival, Milan Arch Week 2019 explores the state of the connections between the human species and Nature, immersing them in the urban context. What does it mean to repair the broken relationship with Nature, understood as a complex interweaving of environmental, social, cultural, economic issues, within the current condition of planetary urbanization?
Milano Arch Week investigates cities as a system of flows and networks; cities as integrated systems of artifice and nature; cities as places continuously shaped by a ‘contemporary plurality’ of subjects, individuals, trajectories; cities as places of material and immaterial production; cities as places where the human species has the opportunity to repair the broken relationship with Nature and reverse the disastrous effects of climate change by regenerating spaces and relationships.
The 2019 edition has brought lectures by well known international architects such as: Rem Koolhaas, Ma Yangsong, Tatiana Bilbao, Shigeru Ban, Giancarlo Mazzanti, URBZ, Kunle Adeyemi NLE, Mario Botta, Al Borde, Assemble, Andrea Branzi, Eyal Weizman, Winy Maas MVRDV.
