Tall Buildings 2024, in Milan in June

 In News

The annual ‘Tall Buildings’ conference, now in its 13th edition, will be held on 20 June in the Hall of Honour of the Milan Triennale, under the patronage of the Iuav University of Venice and the Milan Polytechnic. The event will last a whole day, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. As in past editions, the organisation and coordination is entrusted to Professors Aldo Norsa (Guamari) and Dario Trabucco (Iuav). Once again this year, Elevatori Magazine is the conference’s media partner.

During the event, which will see Italian and international protagonists of architecture take the stage, the state of the art in Italy (as witnessed by the designers of the most recent buildings) will be reviewed with those of other countries, and the multiple disciplines of design, construction and management, as well as those that contribute to the innovation of processes and products, will dialogue.
