Venice International Student Workshop & Competition 2012

Venice International Student Workshop & Competition 2012

June 2012 - Permasteelisa Group is proud to support, for the second year in a row, the "Tall on the Water", International Student Workshop and Competition that, over a two-week long didactic experience, is open to graduate and undergraduate students.


The "Tall on the Water" objectives are to guide the students through the design of a tall building development in the unique natural and cultural context of the Venice lagoon. The brief asks the students to design a small cluster of towers (100-150 meters) surrounding a taller building. The complex will be located in a dismissed industrial area in the west part of the lagoon, on the south of the residential city of Mestre that is now the center of an extensive redevelopment project. As these towers will be part of the future aspect of Mestre, all projects currently planned are considered to be already built.


Given the complexity of the brief, the students will be asked to work in small teams. Students will work on their projects from Monday to Friday for the two weeks of the workshop, alternating focused lectures, on-project activities, public debates and moments of rest when they can enjoy the proximity of the beaches or the exciting historic monuments of Venice.


  • Date: July 2-13, 2012
  • Location: Magazzini Ligabue Building, IUAV University of Venice, Italy
  • Organized by: Venice Architectural Association
