AGORÀ call: How will we live together?
The proposed event allows you to discuss the theme of the Venice Biennale 2021. For this reason, on 25 November, sponsored by the Politecnico di Milano, we will propose a debate on the theme: “How will we live together?”, A question that during the epidemiological crisis we are living has taken on a new and extremely current meaning.
The event will be called “AGORÀ talk: How will we live together?” and it will be synthesis of AGORÀ magazine, our online architecture magazine produced by students and professionals from different disciplines. The event will be broadcast in streaming on our social channels (Facebook, Instagram and YouTube) and on the virtual platform “Zoom”. The program will start at 2.30 pm and will be developed in four one-hour sessions, during which international and Italian professionals will discuss the theme of the event.
Therefore, in parallel with the event, an “AGORÀ call” was launched to promote and stimulate further debate within society. The theme of the call is a personal interpretation of the specific theme, “How will we live together?”, A subjective and free vision represented through an image accompanied by a text, which illustrates your will. A preliminary vote on our social media networks will decide the 10 finalists, who will be exhibited, as soon as conditions permit, in a specific installation within the Politecnico di Milano, from which the jury composed of the guests of the event will select the 3 winners of the contest.
Never as in this period of global pandemic has this question taken on a meaning that involves us all. What will our life be like after this experience and how will we manage to live together with others? Social inclusion, housing strategy, climate change, sharing, diversity, survival, community, ethnicity, man, nature, racism, pollution… words upon words, reflections on reflections…
The call request is not to propose an architecture project, but an architecture manifesto, a personal idea that increases the cultural debate and stimulates the people who will view your posters, both on social networks and physically, to further reflect.
The call is addressed exclusively to PoliMi students, you can participate individually or in groups (max 3 people). The texts of the paper may be either in Italian or in English.
What are the evaluation criteria?
(Social Network : 1-10 punti)+(Graphic communication: 1-20 punti)+(Vision of the proposal: 1-30 punti) = 60 pt.
The results will be announced on the day of the event. The work of the jury is unquestionable. Except for the 3 winners, the remaining part of the finalists will be considered equal.
