Edition 2019

Exhibit and presentation Washington D.C.

With the second edition, we decided to propose a common theme for each University, which allows us to compare and contrast student work. The title of the second event originates in the slogan: “Building within the dimension of history”. This theme comes from the belief that working on an architectural project in Italy means to match with a strongly anthropized territory and with urban fabric stratified trough history. We think that especially in Italy, history has to be considered as an immanent dimension of the architectural design. This particular dimension is added to the traditional ones represented by the classical Vitruvius’s triad (Firmitas, Utilitas, Venustas) and it is nowadays impossible to escape from this new dimension.
