Architetture Precarie (Venice) and Natural Born Builders (Versilia), in collaboration with the Latina Association of Architects organise a self-construction workshop in Venice, with the aim of creating a large luminous bamboo structure.

The course includes a theoretical part in which the members will be able to know and deepen the bamboo material. During the practical part, the students will learn the working techniques and will be guided in the realization and assembly of the luminous structure.

Giacomo Mencarini, being even a builder of strawbale homes, will also share an expert overview of this other interesting building field.

Futurity Island (on sympoietics)

Lithuanian Pavilion. 16th Architecture Biennale
Giardino Bianco Art Space  •  Venice 06.25 > 06.30

Inspired by discussions on radical imagination, indigenous thought, collective intelligence, and plural ecology, Futurity Island invites participants to develop new habits of thought for the era of environmental crisis. The Futurity Island will provide participants a space to speculate on urban and material futures and will probe the usefulness of the concept “sympoiesis” toward imagining and working together in radical inter-disciplinarity toward desirable futures.
