CityVision is a permanent lab that aims to develop a new concept of architecture that is truly contemporary. The lab draws together a task force of experts active in monitoring the state of architecture and design in our cities. Central to the organization’s development are forums, editorial initiatives, multimedia models, ideas competitions, and workshops – each of which communicates ideas and sets the wheels in motion for implementation.

The Rome City Vision Experience and Love and Kill your own Town was a tremendous success, drawing more than three thousand architects. On September 16, 2011, CityVision magazine, in collaboration with the MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, will present Y1, the first independent event on architecture in Rome.

The evening dedicated to the event will feature:

A talk by American architect, Joshua Prince-Ramus , partner at OMA / Rem Koolhass and recently named one of the 5 best architects in the world under 50

The winners of the International Competition Venice CityVision (with Bjarke Ingels present)

The presentation of the new International Competition New York CityVision

The issue 4 – Autumn 2011 (special issue) of CityVision magazine.

If you’re interested in attending the event you can stop by the MAXXI Musuem, located in via Guido Reni 4, on September 16th, 2011. Doors open to guests at 6pm.
