On Friday, September 16th 2011 CityVision magazine organized in Rome at the MAXXI, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts, the event Y1 Independent Architecture  Stuff , tended by Francesco Lipari and Vanessa Todaro (OFL architecture).

The evening opened with Pippo Ciorra, Senior Curator of MAXXI architecture giving an institutional greeting.

The presentation of CityVision has been taken care of by Francesco Lipari, founder and creative director of the magazine. With a succession of eye-catching images Lipari has unveiled the work made by Cityvision in just one year and a half through the three issues of the magazine, two international competitions, several events and the faces of all the magazine’s collaborators , including the components of the editorial staff: Vanessa Todaro (co-founder and managing editor), Maria Azzurra Rossi (editor and graphic designer), Mark Arciero (marketing manager) and Paolo Emilio Bellisario (responsible for external relations).

Great expectation for the first lecture in Italy by the newyorker architect Joshua Prince-Ramus (REX Architecture), recently named among the top 5 of under 50 architects in the world. The Prince-Ramus lecture, who presented some of its most important projects and realizations, has excited and engaged the audience for an hour and a half.

After the lecture the award ceremony of the winners of Venice CityVision, a competition of ideas that took place from February to June 2011 having as jury members people like Bjarke Ingels, Neri Oxman, Elena Manferdini, Bostjan Vuga and Maria Ludovica Tramontin.

During the evening the presentation of the Special Issue 4 – Autumn 2011 of CityVision magazine and the launch of the 2012 international competition featuring the Big Apple: New York CityVision.

The auditorium was sold out and unfortunately many people couldn’t get in and waited outside the museum with the hope of being able to attend the event.

The evening then continued with a drink in the outer space of the museum and then it moved to the center of Rome. A rewarding job for the organizers who are ready for new appointments as Y1 in order to stimulate new debates on contemporary architecture.

CityVision once again confirms itself as a permanent lab that aims to develop a new architecture concept, so the modern city and its future image interact to update the skyline of our cities.
