Stories of Constructions
(or stories of the varying relationships between Architecture and Engineering)
MI/ARCH, the International Festival of Architecture promoted by Politecnico di Milano, every year hosts a series of conferences, meetings and public events.
Its fourth edition will explore the architecture-engineering nexus through the particular perspective of construction processes: a series of emblematic stories concerning the construction of simple structures within the contemporary space. The aim is to explore the forms through which Architecture and Engineering techniques intersect or overlap, sometimes colliding other times cooperating fruitfully.
Architects and engineers, co-protagonist of the same construction story, talk about some of their projects that have been realized – buildings, landscapes, infrastructures, tools – highlighting the internal tensions experienced between Architecture techniques and Engineering branches.
During the four days of MI/ARCH we will hear the voices of some of the leaders of international architecture: Solano Benítez, BIG, Grimshaw Architects, Grüntuch Ernst Architekten, Francis Kéré, Greg Lynn, Keichii Matsuda, Kazuyo Sejima, Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid Architects), Ábalos-Sentkiewicz Arquitectos, Alejandro Zaera-Polo and many many others.
