MArch Advanced students’ trip to Venice



The one to Venice has been the first trip of those who make up the MArch Advanced program in this 2023 2024 academic year. In these first days of November we traveled to the capital of Veneto to visit the Architecture Biennale, which closes its doors in the coming weeks , as well as to learn about contemporary projects carried out in the city and part of its history.

In this edition of the biennial curated by Lesley Lokko, students were able to see different proposals that followed the leitmotif of the exhibition around decarbonization and a cleaner future, as well as reflections on migratory movements. They also had the opportunity to visit the proposals presented in the different pavilions, highlighting that of Slovenia, Belgium, Argentina or Austria, and enjoy the architecture of some of them such as that of Scandinavia or Venezuela.

Outside of the biennial we visited the Kengo Kuma exhibition at the Cavalli-Franchetti palazzo, Norman Foster’s Essential Homes (where there were also some urban furniture proposals designed by studios such as Snøhetta) and the Vatican chapels on the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, all this within the framework of the Fuoribiennale.

In addition, we had the opportunity to learn about some of the contemporary projects executed in the city and designed by renowned international architects, such as Tadao Ando, OMA or Carlo Scarpa, and we toured some of the most representative historical enclaves of Venice.
