Venice - Results

Venice CityVision Competition focused on the revealing of the urban context as a newly launched syntax of diverse terms. If one imagines the existing area as the creational canvas then on a mixture of Baroque and Renaissance fragments, one is invited to propose an original dialogue, an advanced element, as if inserting a new exhibit in an ever-existing museum. Aiming to highlight the intense water border, that divides the vertical body of the city in two parts – above and underneath it -  the proposals given should reinterpret the symbiosis, the antithesis or even the collaboration of the three parts: the lower and upper urban segments, as well as the in-between limit. If the particular case of the city of Venice would be translated verbally as a live microcosm in constant – yet discreet – change, then as focal point of the competition stands the element of a delicate motion. This specific urban example is appointed, one one hand, to represent a moving city – concerning the as-said phenomenon of sinking – but also a city in which the transportations are being executed in a special way. Architects, engineers and all kind of creational artists are invited to participate in a competition that attempts to answer the following questions: How can a subtle city movement be expressed through a design proposal? And how one may develop his work according to a vertical or horizontal axe?
