The Venice Architecture Academy is an intensive experience that offers different prospective on the whole world of Architecture. The Academy is composed by the VAAD – Venice Art + Architecture Days, with a rich program of talks, workshops and meetings during the opening days of BORDERS festival, and the Summer Architecture Academy, with courses on Architectural main themes, from Interior Design to Urban Planning.

 

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders“, between the soul and the body, the man and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The man reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities“, where differences create new possibilities and exchange possibilities, instead of being social barriers.

The festival also aims to discover the interpretations of borders between built and unbuilt geographical contexts, the complex spatial mechanisms within contemporary cities and territories. The festival aims to understand these underlying cultural philosophical, political and aesthetic value systems that influence the production of architectural form. The investigation concerns not just territories’ borders: the festival focuses on the design and the construction strategies applied to the contemporary “skin and bones” architecture, on the thin surface that divides and connects the inner places with the outer spaces, from the single buildings to the huge metropolis’ borderline.

 

BORDERS festival is organized and curated by Luca Curci (architect, professor of Urban Planning and Interior Design at the Bahcesehir University (BAU) in the department of Rome, founder and director of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS and It’s LIQUID Group) and Andrea Chinellato (director of Ca’ Zanardi and Venice Art House).

 

Extended deadline for applications is July 08, 2016 (11.59 PM of your local time).

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi (Cannaregio 4132, Venice) is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal.  It is easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.
