Shaping European Cities. Urban confrontation, democracy and identity Young Talent Architecture Award Granting Ceremony
Collateral Event of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition
The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe in Barcelona will organize the debate Shaping European Cities. Urban confrontation, democracy and identity and will grant the Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA).
Both events, funded by the Creative Europe programme, will highlight the conviction that high-quality architectural solutions foster growth, social inclusion, democratic participation and – ultimately – individual and societal well-being for city residents. The newly created Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award brings under the spotlight the architects' education and their first steps into professional life. Speakers and participants will be announced at the beginning of Biennale Architettura 2016 and the discussion will be open to people involved in the construction of our territories, from citizens to stakeholders, from policymakers to architecture experts and from critics to students.
