Today marks the beginning of the second event of the Biennale della Sostenibilità. The workshop, titled “Waves – Architecture Workshop in Venice,” represents the twenty-second time for the Venice-based university IUAV, of involvement on current topics for the city. At 11 am, in the main auditorium at Tolentini, will start the edition themed “Water, Waters”.
Over the course of three weeks, designers and professionals from Italy and around the world will collaborate with over a thousand IUAV students to develop a shared project, driven by a commitment to environmental, social, and cultural sustainability.
This year, the workshop will address the issue of rising sea levels, exploring the necessary defense and adaptation systems and their impact on the territory.
This edition is part of the Biennale della Sostenibilità 2023, “The MOSE ERA” launched by the Venice Sustainability Foundation (VSF/FVCMS). The series of events aims to explore the implications of MOSE on the city, as both an enabling element for socio-economic planning in the currently protected areas and a solution that allows time for conceiving future infrastructure for when MOSE will no longer be functional.
The three-week workshop (from June 26th to July 14th) will conclude with an exhibition open to the public, which will be inaugurated on Friday, July 14th at the Venetian Cotton Mill, the IUAV venue.
