Scope and Content

This project series documents the Recuperação da Área do Campo di Marte in Giudecca, Italy. The office archivist identified this project as 34/80. The office assigned the date 1985 for 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 (building not built) to collaborate on individual buildings. Siza's building was completed in 2016.

Documentation, drawings, and photographs specific to Siza's Projecto para um Edifício de Habitação em Campo di Marte can be found in subseries AP178.S1.1985.PR02.SS2.
