Architecture for Landscape
THE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT AS THE STAGE FOR DESIGN
6th September 2021 / 12th November 2021
Internship at SNOHETTA, SANAA, DILLER SCOFIDIO + RENFRO
From Stonehenge to Greek temples, architecture is the signature of humankind on landscape, the artificial element that has always been connected to the natural environment. Architecture and landscape are linked by a fundamental continuity that is now starting to fade, damaging the quality of the space we dwell.
More than ever today, landscape is a precious heritage that architecture can and must enhance, while protecting it to pass it on to future generations: architects shall not give up on working on landscape, instead they should be able to design architectures that respond to each landscape’s specific feature and generates wonderful and unique spaces.
The “Architecture for Landscape” course was created on these premises: it aims at training designers who are able to meet the diverse needs of transforming territories, enforcing an attentive and productive dialogue with the surrounding landscape to respond to the needs of prestigious clients in outstanding contexts.
Through a thorough analysis of the natural world, light and geomorphological features of terrains, the designers will become more and more able to reconnect human design to the natural environment and be inspired by landscape to design outstanding, sustainable and impressive architectures. The course will be made up of 82 hours of lessons, a 32-hour workshop and multiple lectures by well-renowned professional architects.

DESIGN OF OBSERVATION POINTS AND WWF RESEARCH CENTER
The course will be carried out in collaboration with the WWF of Italy for the design of different observation points and a research center in the oasis of Valle Averto. Natural compendium of extraordinary charm, Valle Averto is located in one of the most unique historical and natural contexts in the world: The lagoon of Venice. It is the perfect synthesis between human-induced activity and natural element and among the WWF oasis, is particularly suited for the formation of biodiversity of humid zones, allowing a great observation on the wildlife, but in proximity of infrastructures that can offer an efficient research network. Through the workshop students will have the opportunity to measure up with a unique and uncontaminated landscape, and to collaborate with on of the most prestigious and internationally important ecologist association. For a more proper interiorization of the place, students will have the chance to stay and attend the class for three days at the Villa.
