poveglia university island | venezia | 2016
The unconscious challenge of conserving silence and nature, innovation and originality is always present in the Poveglia University Island. Not only it’s a natural charming place skimmed by waters but this proposal weaves a pattern of continuous elements and scenes that needed to be deconstructed and analysed so that it would create a toolkit that fits back together like a puzzle with parameters for growth and adaptation.
This disastrous decline that Poveglia had to undergo, abandoned for almost 50 years, crushing slowly every element of artificiality has it’s own charm; and chaos it’s own palimpsestous layer and pattern.
A natural setting with grimmest tales and fantastic rumors came back to life, a dream place of knowledge, leisure and relaxation for every anthropos here.
Vitality and magnificence is what introduces a breathtaking campus.
