Architecture education is an exercise in active citizenship to create a critical community capable of consciously intervening from private to collective space, from the scale of the body to that of the city.

In 2023, the third edition aims to offer an opportunity to reflect on education through architecture as an active exercise of a civic consciousness renewed by the overwhelming events of recent years. It is also a platform for exchange to investigate whether and how these changes have generated a different approach to reality. The isolation we have been forced into has put our bodies – the first vehicle of perception and confrontation with space – to the test, thus modifying our relationship with domestic environments and the urban scale.

In 2019 MAXXI Education organised the first international conference dedicated to education on the built environment to reflect on state of art in architecture education. The best practices survey highlighted the importance of activating processes to raise awareness of architectural language to increase awareness of the spaces of our everyday life and actively intervene in defining their aesthetic and relational characters.

In the second edition, design methodologies capable of “de-structuring” pre-defined linguistic codes have been explored to arrive at the formulation of different ‘alphabets of the space’, which better satisfy the new needs of a constantly-changing world – especially in the pandemic period.
