Wonderland – platform for european architecture invites young architects to apply for Blind Date, a unique event fostering an unconventional method of exchange.
Deadline: 11th of March 2013
In cooperation with the Chamber of Architects of Milan, wonderland is organizing a series of Blind Dates in spring / summer 2013. An Italian team will be paired with two other European teams to present and discuss different points of views and approaches on a selected topic. The Blind Dates will take place in Milan / Italy. The topics of the five events revolve around the creation and establishment of an architectural practice. The aim is to compare and confront the differences in professional practices in various European countries in comparison to the situation in Italy. The Blind Dates will mainly tackle the issue of the 'HOW' in everyday architectural practice.

- Getting Started where to go, what to do, how to keep up, ...
- Making Mistakes where things can go wrong, what to do when things go wrong, ...

Blind Date is a format for presentation, communication and networking of young architectural teams, urban planners and landscape architects, developed by wonderland. Blind Dates create a platform for young architectural professionals to present their own work and ideas to the public. The teams will never have met before and their only point of connection is the common topic of discussion for the evening. With these events, wonderland offers young European architecture professionals the opportunity to present themselves to an international audience, to provide ideas for discussion and to make new friendships and collaborations.
