The Future Architecture platform acts as key exchange and networking platform for European architecture. The platform enables European museums, festivals, producers, publishers, specialised agencies, academic institutions and other cultural operators in the field of architecture to easily connect and build joint projects, products, services and experiences. In the 1st year the programme will connect 6 museums, 8 festivals, 2 producers, 1 publisher, 1 communication agency and 1 academic institution, who come from 13 European countries. The program integrates some of the key existing initiatives in the field of architecture in Europe, such as European Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA), organized by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Young Architects Program (YAP), organized by the MAXXI in Rome, which extends beyond Europe, with versions in MoMA New York, Constructo of Santiago, Istanbul Modern and MMCA Seoul.

The platform invites emerging creatives of different disciplines to apply to its Open Calls and become main providers of content which will shape platforms’ exhibitions, conferences, summer schools, prototyping, workshops and other programme modules. Open Calls will annually expose more than 500 talents through online presentation, discussion, sharing and public selecting. Creative Exchange and Matchmaking Conferences will enable emerging creators to publicly present their work, meet with museum and festival managers to enter the programmes of major institutions and organisers around Europe, build recognition and develop their professional skills. Members of the platform will select exhibitors, speakers, workshop leaders and other key players, who will tour around different European countries and present their work at the challenging events of the European Architecture programme. In the first year the programme includes 3 exhibitions, 4 conferences, 1 lecture series, 1 workshop, 1 summer school, 1 prototyping, 1 digital bookshelf and 1 residency.
