Venezia: The Latest Architecture and News
CA’ASI exhibits Young European Architects, one of the collateral events of the 17th Biennale Architettura from May 22nd to November 21st, 2021.
The River Somes project is a contemporary example of river regeneration and re-naturalization efforts that aims to interconnect the diverse communities that inhabit the city of Cluj-Napoca in Romania, as well as to re-associate them to local fauna and flora species that were far removed from their natural habitat on the riverbanks.
Given the wide range of the project, it proposes a new frame for dialogue and interaction by means of architecture, and unites the efforts of a wide multidisciplinary team that includes architects, landscape designers, engineers, urban planners, government agencies and everyday users in order to find a possible answer to the question of how we will live together.
The project therefore re-imagines the river as a new active social space for interrelation that operates across scales and programs. It defines how the residents of the city interact among themselves and with their surrounding ecosystem. On a community-scale level, it becomes a space to gather and exchange ideas among the different communities that live in the city.
The Somes project, although limited in time and space, has multiple ramifications that affect entire communities across social orders and physical boundaries, and acts as a new piece of shared infrastructure that addresses both local and global conditions equally.

On May 22nd 2021, from 10:00 to 19:00, the Unfolding Pavilion will open its doors to the public. Now in its third edition, the Unfolding Pavilion will pop-up on the occasion of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition at the Biennale di Venezia, inside of the belly of an old mercantile sailboat - a trabaccolo - moored at Punta della Dogana. Now managed by a non-profit organization, the trabaccolo once belonged to Countess Luisa Albertina di Tesserata: an eccentric art collector who in the 1970s commissioned the construction, on a small island of the Venetian archipelago she owned, of an almost exact replica of an unrealised project by John Hejduk: the House for the Inhabitant who Refused to Participate.

The LSA’s exhibition in Venice is curated by Jan Boelen, commissioned by Julija Reklaitė and organised by Rupert, Centre for Art and Education.

The invited design competition aims to explore visions and urban schemes envisaging the re-articulation of manufacturing areas in the territory in-between Mestre and Marghera industrial area. In a condition of radical transformation of labor and productive activities, among the ones that are suitable for Marghera areas, some relevant processes seem to be more feasible and innovative. They consist of the increase of the level of digital content within enterprises, the profound innovation in the manufacturing sector, the inclusion within circular economy processes, the ever-increasing sharing of services and equipment that become places for urban sociality.
