The collections of the MAXXI art present themselves as a strong nucleus that witnesses the national and international artistic production
The MAXXI Architettura collections comprise all those artefacts and documents that, in various ways, represent the material and conceptual complexity of architecture.
The Centro Archivi curates and manages the MAXXI's architecture collections and provides the possibility, inside the Sala Studio, to directly consult the documents and database of its twentieth and twenty-first century collections.
With the my MAXXI card experience the museum full time: unlimited and preferential access, reduced rates to participate to cultural programmes and educational activities
We need to be able to count on a network of benefactors, both in Italy and abroad, to enhance the museum’s permanent collection, guarantee the conservation of the works and present our public with an engaging cultural programme.

Future Architecture Platform is a European program which promotes talents in architecture. Created by an association of 19 institutional bodies, Future Architecture Platform is based on an open call and a selection process in the form of an on—line voting procedure of the projects submitted. The platform selects 25 finalist proposals and turns them into a program of exhibitions, events and workshops shared by all the participating institutions.
The program objective is to identify young groups of professionals, creative talents and enthusiasts from different parts of the world whose ideas are able to tell us the future of architecture. In line with its nature, 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 25 finalist groups in the exhibition and offering to five more studios the opportunity to personally tell 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 finalists help us understanding how architecture may play a role in our future societies thanks to innovative solutions in the field of technology, of social space, in the relationship between architecture and its users, as well
as in the very same idea of construction and cooperation.

Bioplarch is a research project that focuses on understanding the nature of starch based bio—composite materials as a potential architectural material. The aim of the project is to understand whether starch based bioplastic can be used as costruction material both as a facade material and as an interior space furnishing and whether it can function better when blended with fibers.
Potato starch, glycerol, vinegar and water, as being the basic ingredients of hand—crafted bioplastics are blended with natural or synthetic fibers such as pellet (compressed agglomerates, canola, rice, sunflower, molasses stalk sunflower stalk), lignin, synthetic fibers, beewax, gum tragacanth, fly ash, coffee, wood fibers and different additives in order to improve moisture susceptibility and the strength
of the material.

The city is now controlled by the ups and downs of market economy. As architects, designers, authorities and citizens, we must reclaim the common right to the city in the public realm. Common Places is a collaborative research initiated and promoted by architecture office Plan Común, founded in 2012 and focused on research and production of strategies and projects
for maximizing public & collective spaces. The goal is to offer alternatives, which
re—validate the public value of architecture as the way of thinking and building our cities. There are all kinds of themes or subjects of interest, from big scale to intimate spaces. The potential of architecture in this reproduction is based on disciplinary tools such as text and neutral drawings dealing with canonical architectural elements. The 24 cases featured here are part of the results of this research, which will be published during

The Derivative Architecture series (2011—2020) is a decade—long project focused on new forms of domestic architecture, experimental financial models and communitarian ownership. It treats the terms and conditions of debt as a field for architectural design, in order to create more egalitarian, cooperative and inclusive forms of housing.
Products of the research include a trilogy of design projects: The Ingot a 350m gold—plated tower designed to house low—paid, precarious workers, Default Grey, it is an experiment in forms of communal life and Empire Hotel a members club where annual fees confer the right to stay in one of its rooms.
URBZ – India

According to Bruno Latour, we lost the future somewhere in the twentieth century. We are only left with an “avenir”. L’avenir is what comes to us as opposed to the future, which we were foolishly projecting. The externalities we produced and ignored in the process are now overwhelming us. Anticipating what is coming next requires no less creativity and foresight than drawing the future on a blank page. URBZ embraces the present — regardless of how screwed up it is — with a mix of enthusiasm and pragmatism. Instead of inventing the ‘city of the future’ (smart or otherwise) from an academic research lab or an architects’ studio, the existing city becomes the starting point, building connections between one’s own expertise and the knowledge of actors who are rooted in their daily lives.

With an estimated population of 10 million people by 2035, London needs more homes. Following the current models of housing provision, however, more than 300,000 people could be left with no access to adequate housing. ZIP City questions whether we still need houses to live in the city and suggests that technology and our increasing capacity for moving around and adaptation could present new opportunities. A system of buildings and spaces distributed around transport hubs is proposed to facilitate an increasing mobile life and to allow citizens to feel at home outside the confi nes of the dwelling. Zip City promotes a new collective lifestyle where the boundaries between public and private, individual and collective are redefi ned and where individual subjectivities can fl ourish.
