Today we are very glad to introduce you to Marta Battistella, one of our most recent collaborators.
Marta is a graduate student at 4Cities, a European master in urban studies which takes students to Brussels, Vienna, Copenhagen and Madrid. Previously, she also studied visual arts and theater in Venice and landscape design in Vienna.
To the question “Where are you from?”, her answer is both open and precise: 30% from Este, 30% from Venezia, 20% from Wien, 5% from Modena, 5% from Bruxelles, 5% from København and 5% from Madrid.
She is mainly interested, among other topics, in cultural theory related to urbanism and public spaces, landscapes, contemporary dance and photography. A wide and rich profile that brings new approaches and perspectives to the agency, so we are sure we will be sharing interesting debates and experiences with her at work during her internship.
On August 29th, Van Alen Institute and Environmental Defense Fund will host a roundtable discussion at the Venice Biennale US Pavilion to explore the environmental challenges faced by coastal cities throughout the world.
Titled Project Eco-Delta, the initiative is part of VAI and EDF’s ongoing collaboration in developing design strategies for the landscape surrounding New Orleans—the Mississippi River’s coastal delta. The forum will feature leading experts from the fields of design, engineering, public policy and environmental science, who will discuss innovative ways with which we can address the needs of fragile deltas and the communities living in them.
After our installation at the Venice Biennale (“10 things we have learned from the city”) we keep doing some research on anaglyph images. This time we are preparing an exhibition on the Ecoboulevard that will take place in February at the Le Sommer Environnement Gallery in Paris. Here we bring you two examples of the work in process. Try them aout! (f you happen to have a pair of 3D glasses in hand)
Quite often grand cultural events, as the Architecture Biennale is, cross the city of Venice in a such imposing manner, rarely interacting with what stays out of the exhibition path. This applies to the citizens (inhabitants, students, workers) and also to the professionals and the artists officially invited.
During the last Biannale of Architecture 08 in Venice, Enric Ruiz-Geli and Jeremy Rifkin promoted this manifesto: Revolutionizing Architecture to Address the Global Energy Crisis and Climate Change.
We, the architects of the world, recognize that the increase in energy costs is leading to a slow down in the global economy and creating hardships for families everywhere;
50 arquitectos españoles, de dos generaciones, participan en la muestra “De lo construido a la arquitectura sin papel”. Aquellos que empezaron dibujando su obra en papel y tiralíneas y aquellos que sólo han conocido la pantalla del ordenador, son los protagonistas del Pabellón de España en la XI Bienal de Arquitectura de Venecia.

The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia launches the digital fabrication summer workshop. The aim is to produce the Venice Biennale installation that Guallart Architects (www.guallart.com), IaaC (www.iaac.net) and the Bcn Fab Lab (www.fablab.es), with the collaboration of Bestiario, will present during the Venice Biennale, based on digital fabrication procedures.
is a complete monographic publication about the National Swimming Center for the Beijing Olympics 2008. With an exhaustive description about the Watercube we present a detailed study of the project. The book makes an holistic approach to the project that starts with a brief description of urban and social changes that China has been experienced in the last decade. These facts have encouraged the construction boom that made possible these kind of projects occur in cities like Beijing.
Last week we had the pleasure to invite Carlos Teixeira and the French collective aaa to give a conference at Fundación COAM, Madrid. We presented the event urbanacción and opened the exhibition held at the COAM gallery.
