OPEN CALL TO ALL THE
ARCHITECTURE GRADUATES OF 2020
Matteo Cainer launched in 2020 a new curatorial initiative, an international OPEN CALL to all Architecture Graduates of 2020, to draw and sketch a new Extraordinary World.
Covid-19 has presented us with a new challenge, at the physical, psychological and social levels. Our cities have been locked-down, we have been house-bound and our lifestyle and consumption habits have changed. It is time to transform the pandemic crisis into an opportunity for envisioning new lines of thinking, fostering radical strategies and innovative behavioural models that not only question our current mode of living but start to rethink and create a resilient global narrative for our future cities.
You have been asked to change long-standing routines of education, and work and learn remotely, graduating from your room. You rose to the challenge! We admire your strength, your will, passion and perseverance in such extraordinary times. We believe, therefore, that it is time to give back to you because the future IS an opportunity and we want you to seize it and to have a voice on the world stage.
You are the Future so we ask YOU, Graduate Architects of 2020, to imagine and sketch not only how the future will change after the pandemic but how YOU WANT IT TO CHANGE.
We want to create a new Alphabet for the Future: a fresh architectural and design language, to compose an unprecedented vocabulary of ideas for a more equitable way of living, one that is more aware, responsible, conscious, environmental, egalitarian, generous and human-centric.
We want to see your ideas on paper.
The best sketches from around the globe will be part of an international exhibition and a book to compose a new ‘Alphabet for the Future’.
Please spread the word to all 2020 ARCHITECTURE GRADUATES
