A@W Milan 2021: Renewed consensus among the public

12 November 2021

The seventh edition of ARCHITECT@WORK Milan has come to a successful close: over 3,000 visitors for the 190 exhibitors present, with particular appreciation by participants for the quality of the proposals and the opportunity to finally meet live again.

At MiCo in Milan, during the two intense days of 3 and 4 November, we talked about an ingredient in architecture which, although impalpable and invisible, draws voids as opposed to solids and, par excellence, is synonymous with breath and lightness: Oxygen.

Alfonso Femia, one of the protagonists of the seminars on the calendar, talks about oxygen as a material and as a trigger for dilating and compressing. Rhythms and sequences concretize these actions and make them legible, almost without our being aware of it, on the facades of the buildings that design the landscape and form the backdrop to our daily lives.

Architecture, both in its outer shell and in its interior spaces, is therefore a real organism and, as such, lives on materials and technologies that are now increasingly developed with a view to sustainability, regeneration and ethical use throughout the entire life cycle.

Many proposals in line with these values have intrigued the audience of visitors and professionals from the architecture, construction and design sectors along the ARCHITECT@WORK Milan 2021 exhibition route.

The resumption of the event in presence, also followed online on a dedicated platform, saw an increase in products and solutions capable of combining several levels of sensitivity and, therefore, of generating an innovative design approach. After the prolonged solely digital sharing experienced during the pandemic, there emerged, in a strongly communicative way, a focus on the tactile aspect of surfaces, to be explored on the tips of the fingers and appreciated in their three-dimensional qualities.

Design and experience were the key words of the event, which, with perhaps even greater energy than in past editions (the last was in 2019, again in Milan), thrives on specific qualities that are difficult to associate with others in the sector: direct contact, in the space of the booth, between specifier and manufacturer, networking in the lounge areas created between the various exhibition blocks, immediate operability of the proposals, both in terms of novelties and updates.

ARCHITECT@WORK will return to Italy in autumn 2022 with two editions: in Turin on 5 and 6 October and again in Milan on 9 and 10 November.

A@W Turin and Milan 2022: official launch on 16 November

10 November 2021

For next year in Italy, ARCHITECT@WORK is doubling up. This had already happened in 2019, with the customary stop in Milan in November anticipated by a first edition in Turin the month before, marked by great success in terms of audience and participation in the splendid location of the Lingotto, whose architectural features closely matched the content of the exhibition.

After the very positive closure of last edition in Milan, on 3 and 4 November, expectations are growing for the new products and services that architecture and design companies and professionals have been working on in recent months, thanks also to the boom in the construction sector, stimulated by tax breaks and promoted by the positive wave of recovery.

ARCHITECT@WORK Turin 2022 will take place at Lingotto on 5 and 6 October 2022.
ARCHITECT@WORK Milan 2022 will follow at MiCo Milano Congressi on 9 and 10 November 2022.

The mechanisms of sharing, dialogue and updating, already tested by ARCHITECT@WORK in many other international editions, bring the public of Italian professionals closer together in Milan and Turin, creating an opportunity for presentation and meeting that is unique in the panorama of trade fairs. Moreover, in 2023, the Rome edition will take over from Turin again, creating another participation hub and weaving a dense and complex project network at territorial level.

The complexity of ARCHITECT@WORK's training and exhibition offer goes hand in hand with the diversification of the proposals and the ability to trigger positive mechanisms of dialogue and sharing, both within the specific and circumscribed spatial and temporal context of the event, and in the wider context of the profession, thanks to the relationships generated and the continuous opportunities for updating, work and study.

ARCHITECT@WORK successfully closes the last edition of Milan and returns in 2019 with a new event for Turin

11 December 2018

The Milan event on 14 and 15 November successfully closed the 2018 ARCHITECT@WORK calendar, with 3,885 traders visiting the event over the two days, or 8% more than in 2017.

The next event, scheduled for October next year and important in terms of the north west of Italy’s commitment to innovation in architecture, construction and design, will be held in Turin, on 23 and 24 October 2019. Turin alternates every two years with Rome, which hosts its fourth edition in 2020. In Milan, on the other hand, the annual two-day event is allocated its usual dates in mid-November.

This year, two hundred exhibitors have demonstrated, through the showcasing of their projects and products, what it means to create modern day architecture, finding environment-friendly, versatile and modular solutions, made with materials that are frequently inspired by tradition, but innovating and improving them with new unique features and by using high-performance technologies.

ARCHITECT@WORK 2018 editions in Italy: Rome passes the baton to Milan

23 October 2018

The third edition of ARCHITECT@WORK Rome is only just over, but preparation is already under way for the second edition in Italy: Milan, 14th and 15th November in the beautiful setting of MiCo di Mario Bellini.

Light is a constant theme at the two days of the event in Italy, and is narrated through a series of four afternoon seminars (for which training credits are awarded), with several theme-based exhibitions that focus on the relationship between light, materials, architecture, photography and public and private spaces.

The interpreter of this relationship is the end user who as well as being a potential visitor at the event - which in a broad sense is dedicated to architects and designers - experiences the spaces specifically and appreciates their sensory qualities, which not only relate to aesthetics, but also to much more complex ideas.

Light, as shown in the immersive Light Boxes designed by APIL for ARCHITECT@WORK, plays a very powerful design role. If properly calibrated, it can add value to architecture, thus defining unexpected spaces and visuals.

ARCHITECT@WORK, the event designed to bring together companies and designers in a professional and informal environment, returns to Rome on 17 and 18 October 2018.

Innovative products that have been carefully selected by a technical committee will be showcased in a gallery of stands designed by the Belgian creative agency C-4/Creative Fo(u)r, as veritable containers of innovation, quality and expressive and communicative potential.

The layout of the exhibition has been perfectly planned for visitors, and is enriched by the visual experience of the photographic projects presented by the Dutch collective DAPh and wall creato by World-architects.com.

The exhibition is abundant, varied and easy to view. It can be visited while paying the right amount of attention and having any necessary breaks. Breaks can be spent in the lounge areas or free catering area, and purchases can be made at the Temporary Bookstore, the pop-up bookshop dedicated to fans of architecture, design and photography, a store than can meet the needs of even the most demanding collectors.

The recently concluded 4th edition of ARCHITECT@WORK Milan was a resounding success and again proved to be a winning formula. Welcoming 8.5% more visitors than last year and 3,597 professionals from the sector, who were given the chance to appreciate technology and innovation, on 29th and 30th November, at the stands of MiCo-Milan.
