STUDIO 3
NOT_I AM EMOTIONAL

Overview:
Venice still lies before our eyes as it was in its final period of decadence: so weak, so silent, stripped of everything except its beauty. These historical and phantasmic presences are often tied to stories of disappearing streets, talking monuments, and cursed islands and buildings such as Palazzo Dario. This studio seeks to explore Venice's intangible cultural heritage by asking students to imagine and construct a house which physically reacts to its inhabitant's emotions and thus adapts its spatiality to them.

  • Punta della Dogana
  • Palazzo Dario
  • Biennale Arsenale
