CURATING THE WORLD -
VENICE, SYMBOL AND EXHIBITION CULTURE
In the tradition of Aldo Rossi's International Design Competition for the Venice Architecture
Biennale in 1985 we will seek to deploy strategies for the activation of both significant and
in-significant urban sites in Venice. Each student project will inevitably lie somewhere
between preservation and modernity, and in-so-doing they will situate themselves within
the hotly contested debate concerning Venetian futures and it's supposed 'anti-
modernism'.

The programme is developed by Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne.

The networks I was able to create during last summer's course at the European Cultural Academy have enabled me to put together my first exhibition in Amsterdam, just as much as the exhibitions I viewed and all the knowledge I gained in Venice have.
