Metamorph 9 | Venice Biennale

Architettura spiegata ai ragazzi

Metamorph: A journey in contemporary architecture
For the 9th International Architecture Biennale, we made a long discovery journey to put students  into direct contact with the protagonists of contemporary architecture. A journey to discover the projects of the great architects:

Odile Decq Studio – Ampliamento MACROContemporary Art Museum. Rome
Peter Eisenman Studio – Reinhardt Haus. Berlin
EMBT Studio – Eric Miralles e Benedetta TagliabueSanta Caterina Market. Barcellona
Juan Navarro Baldeweg Studio – Universidad Pompeu Fabra. Barcellona
Soriano Studio – Palacio Euskalduna. Bilbao

Meeting architects in their studios, the students got to understand their projects. They discovered different methods of design, creation processes and way of thinking: this was accomplished by seeing maquettes and prototypes, together with the realisation of workshops and architectural learning experiences. The result was a stimulating exchange, an itinerary of activities that is recorded in the volume available to everyone.  Take a look at the shooting gallery on flickr.

An editorial version of the project is available: “Metamorph. A journey into contemporary architecture”, Ed. Marsilio, 2004, in addition to a web version.
