The challenging urban regeneration
of Milano Porta Romana rail yard
The MIAW – Milan International Architecture Workshop is the international intensive program of the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering. It is an international design forum for schools, teachers and students, but it is also an informal platform to discuss different issues and share ambitions. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate cross-over thinking between researchers and practitioners in the design field, involving different scales and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach towards the design problems. Each class of the workshop is held by an International Guest Professor of high profile whose activity and interests are related to the different study courses and disciplinary areas characterizing our school.
The MIAW 2021 edition will focus on the event of the 2026 Winter Olympic Games Milano-Cortina. The workshop will allow to experiment new architectural approaches that will make the Olympic Games fisically-responsible, socially-sustainable and environmentally-friendly. The classes will focus on urban strategies and architecture projects to be implemented in the sites dedicated to the Olympic Games in Milan, with the intention of transforming the event in an opportunity for the city of Milan through a log-term regeneration process.
