The Fundació Mies van der Rohe joins this year, for the first time, the Future Architecture platform. Future Architecture is the first pan-European platform of architecture museums, festivals and producers, who wants to bring ideas about the future of cities and architecture to the general public. We encourage you to present your proposals, the Mies van der Rohe Foundation, as well as participating in the selection of the best projects, will host in some of its activities the selected candidates. 5 talents of the platform will be invited to participate in the YTAA events, such as the Venice Biennale or the Barcelona Architecture Week. All in all, the YTAA winners will have the opportunity to participate in the Matchmaking Conference platform of the Future Architecture platform. The purpose of the Young Talent Architecture Award, which this year celebrates its second edition, is to highlight the emerging generation of talents and give them the opportunity to share their ideas about the future of cities and architecture, thus largely sharing the objectives of the platform that are: • Exchange: 19 organizers from 15 countries are creating a pan-European program where emerging creators present their ideas in exhibitions, conferences and workshops, in books and on the web. • Generate awareness: make complex architectural problems understandable to everyone, and promote a more sustainable living environment. • Build commitment: recognize the organizers who work with emerging talents who aspire to and show their commitment to the objectives of the platform.
