New Generations has pioneered a novel architecture festival format involving architects, designers, makers, thinkers, and citizens. Since 2012, 8 international festivals have been held in Rome, Florence, Genoa, Milan, Warsaw, and Madrid. The ongoing three-year edition of the New Generations Festival will take place at the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome.
This open call for publications is part of “New Urban Challenges”, the three-year edition (2020 – 2021 – 2022) of the New Generations festival that takes place in Rome, Italy. These three editions of the festival aim to explore the relation between the urban environment and six intertwined themes, two every year. The project has been awarded by the public tender “Estate Romana 2020 – 2021 – 2022” and is part of Romarama, a cultural programme promoted by Roma Capitale. The 2021 edition of the festival is set to take place on June 31, July 1, July 2, 2021(dates are subject to changes regarding public health guidelines) at the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome, Italy. To participate in this year’s edition, send your editorial project using this submission form!
New Generations is looking for publications developed by emerging practices and architectural publishing projects. The call is open to books, magazines, zines, digital projects, papers, critical articles, and other forms of editorial production since 2016, related to one of these two year’s topics: (City and) Technology — (City and) Image. The call will close on Sunday – March 21st – 24:00 GMT+1.
The open call aims to select editorial projects that will be featured in either of the two following formats: (A) Festival 2021 The 2021 festival will feature the participation of around 20 international guests in a hybrid format with both public and virtual activities over the course of three days. Selected participants will get involved in the various activities of the festival programme such as the Speakers Corner, Brainstorming Workshop and the Pecha Kucha Presentations. Those selected as participants in the festival will also be able to participate in the travelling exhibition. (B) Exhibition 2021 Selected editorial projects from the call will be exhibited within a travelling installation. The installation is conceived as a mobile device divided into six pieces, where each piece represents a different theme. Over the three festival editions, the six pieces of the installation will collect new publications, proposing a sort of traveling library with a selection of relevant books related with each of the six themes proposed during the triennial edition of the Festival. The installation will be opened to the public at the Royal Academy of Spain in Rome (May 2021) and consequently travel through a number of prestigious locations across Europe over the three years of the festival.
