Venetian Architecture and the Heritage of Carlo Scarpa

language English
duration 2 weeks
fee EUR 1650

The studio will explore the architecture and the art of display of Carlo Scarpa, and their relationship to his native city. How did the palimpsest-like space of Venice inspire Carlo Scarpa? What kinds of architecture and interventions can we re-imagine for Venice and how can these be enriched by in-depth understanding of his projects? How can we interpret the sites he worked with in Venice and other places? What kinds of curation and exhibition can we design following the close interaction of preservation with modernity in Scarpa's work? What kinds of interventions does Venice need today in order to continue its legacy as a historical environment of contemporary curation and exhibition?
