Wonderland – platform for european architecture is inviting young architects to apply for a unique Blind Date! In cooperation with the Chamber of Architects of Milan, wonderland is organizing a series of Blind Dates in spring / summer 2013. In each event, one Italian team will come together with two other European teams to present and discuss different points of view and approaches on a selected topic.
The topics – inspired by wonderland’s ‘manual for emerging architects’ – revolve around the creation and establishment of an architectural practice. The aim is to confront the differences in professional practices in different European countries and in relation to the Italian situation. Just as in the ‘manual for emerging architects’ the Blind Dates mainly deal with the ‘HOW’ of everyday architecture.
Blind Date is a format for presentation, communication and networking of young architectural teams, urban planners and landscape architects, developed by wonderland. Blind Dates create a platform for young architectural professionals to present their own work and ideas to the public – maybe for the first time. The teams will never have met before and their only point of connection is the common topic of discussion for the evening. With these events, wonderland offers young European architecture professionals the opportunity to present themselves to an international audience, to provide ideas for discussion and to make new friendships and collaborations. Inspired by the wonderland ‘manual for emerging architects’, Blind Date to the following topics will be organized: – Getting Started – Making Mistakes – Going Public – Getting Specialized – Making Competition
