Venice Re-Creation Centre Competition 2016

2016 VENICE Re-Creation Centre COMPETITION

Registration and Submission by Apr. 30th 2016


This is a single stage Ideas Competition with the aim of identifying the best proposal for a Cultural Building Refurbishment in Lido Island – Venice, Italy.

The purpose of this Ideas Competition is to generate solutions that can have an impact in the cultural activity of the city. This Competition aims to breathe new life into this sector of the city, benefit the surrounding community through the successful restoration of this public building into a relevant cultural equipment and spark the reactivation of these series of unused buildings and spaces.

Working with this memory and the inherent value of the place, since 2011 the theatre building has been protected and reactivated by a local Organization – Association Teatro Marinoni – connected with an international network of schools, associations, professionals and artists. Their dream for the future is to revive a common space dedicated to art, care and education, a transdiciplinary school for cultural innovation, artists’ residency and citizens encounter.

Working directly with this Organization, this competition has the goal of providing practical solutions to all diagnosed needs, in order to accelerate the revitalization of this built complex and help accomplish their remarkable mission.

Underlining this assignment a series of question can here be raised:
– How can abandoned urban sites can be brought back to life and benefit their communities?
– How can a cultural Program and its public activities successfully activate and regenerate an urban sector?
– How will the existing buildings be adapted to respond to future transformations?
– How should the memory of the place be recovered and integrated in the new functions of the site?
