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 2022 edition will focus on the design of new schools in Milan, starting from the already developed research program Inventing Schools.
The workshop will allow experimenting with new architectural approaches to the transformation and upgrade of school architecture in Milan, an urgent topic for the city but also for the country. Working on urban strategy and architecture projects the different sections will focus on a new vision for the school of tomorrow.
This year the International Guest Professors will be:
KARIN HOFERT, MLADEN JADRIC, GIANCARLO MAZZANTI, ELSA PROCHAZKA and MIA ROTH.
The first appointment is the MIAW kickoff meeting on May 17th, 2022.
The event will be held online.
The intensive weeks (6th-17th June) will be held in presence mode.
