The European Conference on Architecture & the Media is conceived as a place to meet and exchange experiences on the dissemination of architecture. It is addressed to journalists, cultural institutions and organisations, communication professionals, architects and architecture lovers.

Architecture & the Media is focused on architecture perceived as culture and dissemination of both core values and most cutting-edge topics through the media -either news and specialized media – print, broadcast and online media.

Architecture & the Media is organised by the Fundació Mies van der Rohe and Labóh with the support of Creative Europe as part of the dissemination program of the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award.

This year’s online edition will take place during the Barcelona Architecture Week 2020 and will be curated by Miriam Giordano, expert in communication.
