May 11th-14th 2020 online and in English “A series of talks, debates and conversations focused on architecture and the media” The European Conference on Architecture & the Media is conceived as a place to meet and exchange experiences on the dissemination of architecture. It is addressed to journalists, cultural institutions and organisations, communication professionals, architects and architecture lovers.
Architecture & the Media is focused on architecture perceived as culture and on the dissemination of both core values and most cutting-edge topics through the media, either general-interest and specialized media, printed, audio-visual or online. The 2020 Architecture & the Media conference follows up on the success of the First Edition in 2018, curated by Miriam Giordano and Ewa P. Porębska, and now comes back with new topics.
Next to general issues, the event will focus on television, radio and audio-visual media and will deepen the crosscutting subject of architectural images. The initial venue of the event was to be the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona but the present and extraordinary situation that limits traveling and the possibility of holding events together pushed the organization to move the conference to the digital channels of Fundació Mies van der Rohe.
Architecture & the Media is organised by Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Labóh with the support of Creative Europe as part of the dissemination program of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award. This year’s online edition will take place during the Barcelona Architecture Week 2020 and will be curated by Miriam Giordano, expert in communication.
