The Young Talent Architecture Award (YTAA) is promoted by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe with the support of Creative Europe as an extension of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award. The exhibition presents the designs of the 8 YTAA finalists and the 4 winners. Together with images, drawings and models, other tools such as videos are used to explain graduation projects. The exhibition counts with these documents produced by the authors of the designs and is complemented with the Awards Ceremony and a debate on September 20 in which the theme of the Biennale Architettura 2018 Freespace, the main topics of the “European Year of Cultural Heritage” organized by the European Commission, and those issues which arise from the results of YTAA will be discussed by the winners, the jury members, the Future Architecture platform participants and other guests. The Fundació Mies van der Rohe fosters debate on and awareness of themes related to contemporary architecture and urban planning. Outstanding among its activities is the organisation, jointly with the European Commission, of the Young Talent Architecture Award which aims to support the talent of recently graduated architects, urban planners and landscape architects who will be responsible for transforming our environment in the future.
