Scope and Content

This project series documents the Recuperação da Área do Campo di Marte in Giudecca, Italy. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 34/80. The office assigned the date 1985 to this project.

In 1983, the IACP (Istituto Autonomo Case Popolari) initiated an architectural competition to modernize the existing housing and rehabilitate the urban space of Giudecca. The criteria were undefined in order to give the architect flexibility but insisted on respecting Venetian heritage. Álvaro Siza won the competition and selected Aldo Rossi (building completed in 2004), Carlo Aymonino (building completed in 2004), Rafael Moneo (not built) to collaborate on individual buildings. Siza's building was completed in 2016.
