Fondazione Claudio Buziol

The third edition of the international competition dedicated to young people offers the chance to deal with the theme of creativity in various areas of art, fashion and design. The competition has a more idealistic aim of encouraging participants to present innovative ideas and projects, irrespective of their direct application. It is a true dream factory, where young people are encouraged to ‘dare’, by placing more emphasis on the idea and visionary ability than their technical level. The deadline for the submission of work is set for the 30th of October 2009!

[Bruce Nauman, Topological Gardens, IUAV-Tolentini, 2009]

Last February, the friend and Maestro Adriano Cornoldi unaspected died. Professor in Interior Architecture at IUAV-Venice, in 2007 Adriano arranged the International Conference in Interior “Intervenire sull’esistente/Acting up-on the existent”; as the first one, in 2005, the venue was the Aula Magna of IUAV-Architecture at Tolentini (with its main entrance by Carlo Scarpa). As a homage to his teaching and legacy, I attach a small video-shot taken during the Bruce Nauman installation “Topological Gardens” arranged for the 53rd Art Biennale 2009: the Aula Magna of Tolentini is completely empty and filled only by voices repeting week-day names.

Villa Malaparte

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Thanks to Plataforma Arquitectura I bumped again into this footage from the movie Le Mépris by Jan-Luc Godard, very well known among architects for the setting of Villa Malaparte.

A beautiful house, a beautiful movie, a beautiful summer…
