CityVision is a permanent lab that aims to develop a new concept of architecture that is truly contemporary, so the modern city and its future image interact to update the skyline of our cities. The initiative makes use of a task force of experts active in monitoring the state of architecture and design in our city. Exceptionally innovative contemporary works of art are proposed either at the popular level for public opinion or at a technical level aimed at those responsible for the work. Forums, editorial initiatives, multimedia models, ideas competitions and workshops are the instruments used to single out, discuss and communicate the projection of the avant-garde of the twenty first century. This inspire the realization of quality works for aesthetics and technology, architectonic language, theory and function.

From this experience, the free press CityVision Magazine is born, the first architectural magazine dedicated to contemporary architecture published in Rome and shared in Italy and around the world.

With many pages rich in content on the most interesting cultural tendencies of the moment, it’s distributed in museums, galleries, professional studios, stores and throughout the course of major architectural events, including the encounter at the MAXXI, also dedicated to the Venice CityVision Competition, an ideas competition held this past February through June. The jury, comprised of Bjarke Ingels, Neir Oxman, Elena Manferdini, Bostjan Vuga and Ludovica Tramontin.

CityVision è un laboratorio permanente che mira ad elaborare un concetto d’architettura inedito, dove città contemporanea e sua immagine futura interagiscono per scoprirsi un’unica materialità. L’iniziativa si avvale di una task force di esperti attiva nel monitorare lo stato dell’architettura e del design. Forum, iniziative editoriali, mostre multimediali e concorsi di idee, sono gli strumenti per individuare, discutere e comunicare la progettazione d’avanguardia del XXI secolo, alla quale potersi ispirare nel realizzare opere di qualità, per estetica e tecnologia, linguaggio architettonico, teoria e funzioni. Da questa esperienza nasce il free press CityVision magazine, prima rivista dedicata all’architettura contemporanea pubblicato a Roma e distribuita in Italia e nel mondo. CityVision magazine è il periodico di riferimento per coloro che fanno architettura nella Capitale, con pagine ricche di contenuti sulle più interessanti tendenze culturali del momento, distribuito in musei, gallerie, studi professionali, store del settore e nel corso dei maggiori eventi d’architettura.
