THE DESIGN THEME IS PALAZZO CA’ TRON, HOME OF UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMME IN PLANNING AND URBAN DESIGN AT UNIVERSITÀ IUAV DI VENEZIA.

GOALS >

Open a reflection on the digital manufacturing theme applied to the world of architecture, stimulating a single language in constructive processes between partners and competitors;

Take advantage of the opportunity to make product and process innovation with the know-how of venetian historical companies, that can support the designers throughout the design process;

Imagine a coherent system of macro strategies, which must be able to interact with the existing building and the surrounding historical fabric, and micro solutions of technological and constructive details, which must be part of a single project and easily achievable;

Obtain ideas that think of an innovative way of recovering a Venetian historic building, while maintaining a respectful dialogue with pre-existence. The possibility of adding a new construction will be an incentive to give a unique appearance to the building, making it the symbol of the synergic relationship between history and contemporaneity;

Promote a new use of an academic space, which must become a reference for students and citizens in Venice. This innovative place must become also an example of flexible intervention, capable of adapting to climate change and the global environmental challenges.
