European Cultural Academy in Venice, Italy runs summer studios in architecture this year and the courses are open for applications.
The studios are organised in collaboration with academic staff of international universities: Bartlett University, University of Melbourne, UTS Sydney, University of Manchester and University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Join the summer studios during the Venice Architecture Biennale 2020 and visit the most relevant historical sites and exhibitions.
In 2020 ECA offers two summer studios in Venice, Italy.
VENETIAN ARCHITECTURE AND THE HERITAGE OF CARLO SCARPA
DATES: JULY 1 - 13, 2020
The studio will explore the architecture and the art of display of Carlo Scarpa, and their relationship to his native city. What kinds of architecture and interventions can we re-imagine for Venice and how can these be enriched by in-depth understanding of his projects? Participants will study the most challenging architectural proposals and their rationalities, speculate on their possible contemporary entity for the city of Venice. You will explore different techniques and will be guided through the construction of your design project.

EXHIBITING ARCHITECTURE - CURATION, PRESERVATION AND MASS TOURISM
DATES: July 1 - 13, 2020
The four intensive summer studios asks students to interpret the historical city and the socio-cultural pressures shaping it today by proposing architectural interventions that serve Mass Tourism, Preservation and Curatorial Culture. Students will have the opportunity to witness, appraise, examine, unfold and project explicit or tangential relationships existing between Venice's architecture and urbanism and its pervading 'cultural tourism'. Students should expect to conduct field research at relevant historical sites, museums, archives and the Venice Biennale.
