In celebration of Utzonâ€™s 90th year, the UIMM Utzon International Meeting on Mallorca brings together researchers and practitioners in architecture to reflect upon and to promote an international discussion forum within the field of environmentally responsive contemporary architecture, and promote an understanding of architecture based on the lifetimeâ€™s work and design approach of JÃ¸rn Utzon. The themes will include the relationship of modern architecture to tradition, cultural values, context and landscape, as well as the need to take sustainability into consideration within contemporary architecture. The aim of the UIMM is to stimulate discourse about the creation of sustainable, contextual, humane and tectonic contemporary architecture.
