during the venice architecture biennale, ‘casaplatform’ by SET architects takes shape as an exhibit installation project inside the scuola grande della misericordia, a 16th-century historic building in venicethe project strategy was focused on the idea to insert a light and ethereal structure inside a historic building with strong architectural identity. the entire design is based on the use of two elements, a modular metal frame structure and a system of white canvas on which are printed the 140 projects to be exhibited.SET architects' ethereal installation emerges inside 16th century building at venice biennaleall images courtesy of marco cappelletti

 

 

the project by SET architects is inspired by the façade of procuratie — the three connected buildings located along the perimeter of piazza san marco. the height of the installation reflects the height of the base of the pre-existing columns, creating a direct relationship with the context, between the heaviness of the stone and the lightness of the exhibition structure. in order to ensure the internal circulation of the building, the installation creates interruptions at the stairwells and escape routes through the use of suspended structures that ensures the unity of the architectural object.SET architects' ethereal installation emerges inside 16th century building at venice biennale

 

 

the large number of projects to be exhibited is arranged in serial layout. furthermore, they are emphasized by the repetition of the elements with a rhythm capable of bringing the installation into an abstract dimension. the positioning of the installation in the center of the two side spans allows the display of the projects on both fronts generating fluid and dynamic circulation.SET architects' ethereal installation emerges inside 16th century building at venice biennale
