BIENNALE COLLEGE ARCHITETTURA 2025: INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

12 jun. 2024

Carlo Ratti, as the Artistic Director of the Architecture Department of La Biennale di Venezia, invites students, graduate students and emerging practitioners under the age of 30 to submit projects that employee natural, artificial, and collective intelligence to combat the climate crisis.

From this global pool of submissions, up to 16 projects from undergraduate and graduate students, young professionals in architecture, urban design, engineering, interior design, landscape architecture, and adjacent professions dealing with the built environment, will be chosen by the Artistic Director to be developed in the Biennale College Architettura programme.

The selected participants will subsequently be invited to join a 10-day workshop in Venice in September 2024 to build up the proposals - including production and budget planning. The workshop will be run by the Artistic Director and/or a group of curators and architects who will act as tutors and mentors for the group. The workshop will alternate between group and individual sessions and dedicated meetings with visiting instructors and cultural producers.

A final selection of up to 8 projects¬†will be finally chosen by Carlo Ratti. A grant of ‚ā¨ 20,000.00 for the production will be allocated to each selected project. The works will be presented, out of competition, in the context of the¬†19th¬†International Architecture Exhibition,¬†Intelli/Gens.

The Goal of this endeavor is, among others, to expand opportunities for young emerging practitioners by sharing their work with a wide audience.
