Задача конкурсантов – переосмыслить пространства венецианского дворца Ка' Трон (Palazzo Ca' Tron). Сегодня в здании располагается один из факультетов университета IUAV. Поскольку дворец находится в историческом центре города, необходимо сделать его открытым не только для студентов, но также жителей и гостей Венеции. Помимо развития существующих пространств, участникам предстоит создать новые.
The aim of the contest is to create a link between the world of design and production, and stimulate innovative solutions that start from the knowledge and from the eventual customization of materials used for the project. The design theme is Palazzo Ca’ Tron, location of undergraduate degree programme in Planning and Urban Design at Università Iuav di Venezia, located in the historic center of the city.
The redevelopment project must consider the multiple functions that are attributed to the building. The University wishes to go beyond the traditional boundaries of the academic establishment to create a hybrid space, a place of relationships and a synergic exchange between students and the social and productive context of the territory. Palazzo Ca’ Tron will have to assume the characteristics of a place of knowledge and active promotion for the ongoing urban transformations.
Competitors must have to design a new addition of the building: about 5% of the total volume. This operation can become an opportunity to support new spaces with specific features. Given the peculiarity of the intervention, one of the project constraints will be to create a dialogue between contemporary architecture and historical pre-existence.
Competitors are invited to create a functional-model, well balanced among its various components, in order to get to an idea of innovative space management, which knows how to connect the university spaces towards the public uses. The functional-model should also include external courts, which are an integral part of the project.
Within the project, it is mandatory to use the materials of all business partners for at least one application. The products can be used by selecting them from the partners catalogues, or otherwise, by proposing a customization to stimulate product innovation.
