Creative Exchange is a European gathering for architecture and design lovers and professionals.

Applicants of the Call for Ideas, members and other cultural operators in architecture and design will present their latest developments, new projects and new ideas. The Future Architecture Matchmaking Conference will feature selected Future Architecture emerging creative, three winners of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe Young Talent Architecture Award 2016, and enable members to plan their involvement in the programme modules. Focus Talks will address pressing professional issues and enable members and creatives to gain new knowledge.
