1997 – 2013
MILLENNIUM Meetings: a series of lectures organized by Italcementi with Italy’s leading universities, where the top names in contemporary architecture meet students aspiring to be the architects of the future.
A now well-established Italcementi initiative in the world of architecture, Incontri Millennium is a series of lectures organized with Italy’s leading universities, where the top names in contemporary architecture meet students aspiring to be the architects of the future.
The goal of Incontri Millennium is to articulate the technological quality of cement with the aesthetic dimensions of today’s great masters and Italy’s young students.
For the initiative, which began in 1997, Italcementi has involved the leading university faculties of architecture and the most distinguished names in the profession.
After a reflection on the lecture of Alvar Aalto, Incontri Millennium has gradually examined the design worlds and poetics of Richard Meier, Enric Miralles, Dominique Perrault, Steven Holl, Raimund Abraham, Nicholas Grimshaw, Mario Botta, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Kjetil Trædal Thorsen and Frank O. Gehry, Peter Eisenmann, Eric Owen Moss and Boris Podrecca.
Thanks to Incontri Millennium, more than 10,000 students have had the opportunity for a direct encounter with the cultural values and imprint of today’s leading architects.
