The MIAW – Milan International Architecture Workshop is the international intensive programme at the School of Architecture Urban Planning Construction Engineering. It provides an international design forum for schools, teachers and students, but it is also an informal platform to discuss different thematics and share ambitions. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate cross-over thinking between researchers and practitioners in the design field, involving different scales and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach towards design problems. Each class has an International Guest Professor of high profile whose activity and interests are related to the different study courses and disciplinary areas characterising the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Engineering, Milan.
