The European Cultural Academy offers short courses in art, architecture and urban design during the Venice Biennale. You will receive insider knowledge, from a diverse set of lectures, hands-on workshops, discussions, and tours with local and international experts. 

In 2019 ECA offers two courses in Architecture and Urban Design: 

DATES: JULY 8 - 20, 2019
The two-week course focuses on the relevancy of Venice relation to nature in the construction of a project for a lagoon city. Both territorial and architectural physical materiality and metabolic systems of Venice are confronted simultaneously, to foster new design interpretations and possibilities for the programming and activation of sites in the city. This would allow you to study and confront with the most challenging proposals and their rationalities, whilst re-thinking new interventions.

DATES: July 2 - 6, 2019

In the one-week course you critically and playfully explore public space not only as a "generosity" that architecture can offer to society but also as a political, social and deeply urban condition. The outcome of the one-week course will be a magazine. Created by the participants, it includes your personal projects that reflect on the role of public space in Venice.
