New Generations Festival – Third Edition
The third edition of the international architecture festival NEW GENERATIONS took place in GENOA from NOVEMBER 26 – 29, 2015, with an intense programme of cultural activities and more than 80 INTERNATIONAL GUESTS. The event, curated by Gianpiero Venturini (Itinerant Office) for the cultural association New Generations, was promoted by the Genoa Chamber of Architects and its Foundation. It took place at the MUSEO DI SANT’AGOSTINO.
After successful events in Milan (2013) and Florence (2014), Genoa hosted the third edition of the New Generations festival with the aim of creating a COMMUNITY of architects and experts from different disciplines in order to redefine the role of architecture in contemporary society. The event was structured according to THREE MAIN TOPICS:
1st (CITY) URGENCIES
Our cities are changing and it’s not just architects that are involved in this process: communities, public administrators, private stakeholders and companies all contribute to the identity of a city. Thus, a series of debates spanning urban governance, reactivation of public and private spaces, demolitions, and new technologies, bringing together REPRESENTATIVES FROM BOTH LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC ADMINISTRATIONS, to interact with young and well-known offices from all over the world.
2nd ARCHITECT GROUND ZERO
In order to better understand the EVOLUTION OF THE ARCHITECTURAL PROFESSION, some of the most influential European firms congregated to explore the complex network of relationships between architecture and other disciplines—the participating firms included: Aparicioeeraerts (Belgium), SO? (Turkey), Teratoma Atelier (Spain).
3rd FUNDING MODELS
According to the new generation of architects, ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY is one of the most critical aspects of modern design. Several international guest speakers from the fields of architecture, economics, and entrepreneurial studies discussed the feasibility of NEW ECONOMIC MODELS.
