Abstract
Working in Venice means working in a context that is geographically, hydrographically and historically strongly defined. A city where it is nearly impossible to intervene without positioning oneselves with respect to its cultural context, its history, its building traditions. A city where the introduction of modernity not only has a long history of resistance, but is also a necessity for its survival. Hence, Venice is a good place to reflect upon issues at stake in current architectural practice world wide, in particular the many problematic aspects of globalization in architecture and urban planning. Venice is a good context to think about what remains of the the power of the project within an architectural production of ‘a world without qualities’; a good context to reflect upon possible resistances against a world of non-lieux (Marc Augé, 1992). This text explains the aims of our Master Studio, 'Ontwerpstudio C', and illustrates its intentions with three student projects, made during the second semester of 2012-2013.
