Already thinking about the 2024 events
Two intense days, an exceptional location and 3,652 visitors. This, in numbers, is the balance of the latest edition of ARCHITECT@WORK Milano which, on 8 and 9 November, filled the spaces of the Allianz MiCo with architects, professionals and companies from the building, architecture and interior design industry.
The increase in the number of visitors with respect to the 2022 edition (7%) tells of an ever-increasing interest, on the part of those involved, in the opportunities for meeting and sharing live, which flank, in this 2023 edition full of innovations and stimulating prospects for the future, the network of research, experimentation and comparison always active on the event's digital platform.
And it was precisely the future, enriched by a particular meaning, that was the theme around which the wide-ranging debate of the numerous talks in the programme took place, and which, moreover, took shape in the broad and innovative proposal of the exhibition Next Beauty. Evolution and sensoriality of matter curated by Baolab.
Fab Futures. Emerging languages for future generations can be translated, for example, into the frugal innovation proposed by Eleonora Fontana of the Green Building Council in the context of the seminar Guaranteeing a more beautiful, fairer and sustainable future: an invitation to seek in the small size and simplicity of the atavistic gestures of building the cue to innovate and transform with a view to respect and sustainability.
Among the many proposals of the participating companies, appreciated by the public for their high technical qualities and enhanced by the exhibition layout that makes ARCHITECT@WORK recognisable from edition to edition, on an international scale, a new concept of sustainability stands out, no longer only strictly linked to the theme of recycling and reuse. In fact, an interest emerges in the experimentation of new low-impact materials that, in part, update an ancient and profoundly concrete awareness of making architecture.
For next year, there are two editions of ARCHITECT@WORK Italy, which should be noted in your diary immediately:
- A@W Rome, 12 and 13 June 2024, Fiera Roma
- A@W Milan, 13 and 14 November 2024, Allianz MiCo
