The aim of the contest is to create a link between the world of design and production, and stimulate innovative solutions that start from the knowledge and from the eventual customization of materials used for the project. The design theme is Palazzo Ca’ Tron, location of undergraduate degree program in Planning and Urban Design at Università Iuav di Venezia, located in the historic center of the city.

The redevelopment project must consider the multiple functions that are attributed to the building. The University wishes to go beyond the traditional boundaries of the academic establishment to create a hybrid space, a place of relationships and a synergic exchange between students and the social and productive context of the territory. Palazzo Ca’ Tron will have to assume the characteristics of a place of knowledge and active promotion for the ongoing urban transformations.
