The title of the 2018 edition is Urbania, a look at the future of cities, approached as a complex moment of reflection on the future dynamics of architecture and contemporary urban life.

The Polytechnic and the Triennale approach the theme from the standpoint of design and architecture, hosting lectures by outstanding international architects, while Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli explores the implications of urban spaces through the program About a City. Places, ideas and rights for 2030 citizens, featuring talks, debates, performances and screenings.

The program of Milano Arch Week will include collaboration with some of the most important institutions on the Italian and international scene for architecture and culture: from the Ordine degli Architetti di Milano to Fondazione Prada, Artlab – the platform organized by Fondazione Fitzcarraldo – to Strelka KB of Moscow.

In particular, the ’Ordine degli Architetti di Milano will take part in Arch Week with a range of activities, including the architectural itineraries for the discovery of buildings created by housing cooperatives, an exhibition of the finalist projects of the Baffa-Rivolta European Architecture Award, and an initiative on vintage books and magazines on architecture, urban planning and design: Rovista la Rivista.
