Shaping European Cities. Urban confrontation, democracy and identity

The European Commission and the Fundació Mies van der Rohe are happy to announce to the second “Shaping European Cities” debate, to be held this year as a collateral event of the 15th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
The debate will focus on “Urban confrontation, democracy and identity” and gather relevant stakeholders to discuss the following two themes:
Contemporary architecture and cultural heritage
Public space as a resource for cities

The debate will be followed by the first Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) ceremony, which will highlight the best three diploma projects of the 2015-2016 academic year in Europe with a view to bringing the academic and professional realms closer together.

The event will take place on 28 October 2016 (2-6 pm) at the Teatro Piccolo Arsenale and will be open to everybody who is interested in the architecture profession, its pluridisciplinarity and the dialogue between architects, policy- makers, students and representatives from other sectors.

The online registration website will be opened mid-August at:
