The exhibition and lectures at the MAXXI Rome will be organised in collaboration with the YAP MAXXI programme for young architects. 

It will showcase a selection of 5 research projects from all over the world, differing in scale and scope as well as representational techniques, to provide the visitors with an overview of the future architecture. MAXXI chose to relate to the Future Architecture Platform project with its consolidated strategy of promoting young talents, presenting the artworks of five of the 24 finalist groups in the exhibition and offering five more studios the opportunity to personally present the research they have been carrying out in a series of talks, which will take place in the piazza of the Museum during summer. 

Through their exhibited projects, Future Architecture Platform selected participants thus help us understand, how architecture may play a role in our future societies thanks to innovative solutions in the field of technology, social space in the relationship between architecture and its users, as well as in the very same idea of construction and cooperation.
