Gathering visions and original ideas around a specific theme, the Biennale of Venice act as a sort of mirror to look at the contemporaneity in a very original way, both for art and for architectural aspects. “Freespace” is the title chosen by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara for the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, but it is also a word to describe the “sense of humanity located at the core of architecture, looking at the essential quality of space and at its embodied power and beauty”. Starting from this statement, the course proposed by IED Venezia explores the relation between space and art, looked from different points of view and prospective, through specific visits and meetings. Aim of the training path is to provide students with knowledges and tools useful to understand the way in which architecture can successfully dialogue with nature and human artistic expressions. -

Two thousand years of history- from small riverside settlement to urban metropolis- has imbued London with a unique and varied architectural landscape. Using a series of case studies we will investigate the range of architectural styles found across London and how these reflect different periods in its expansion. These case studies will be drawn from both well-known famous and lesser-known hidden landmarks. We will consider each buildings location, its purpose, who built/designed it, its architectural style and its place within wider social, political, religious, cultural and historical events of the time. -
