From Piazzale Roma, those arriving in Venice by car should then cjno the same route. This is only in part the result of that urban strategy which from the s saw movement and heterogeneity as a value to be contrasted with the monotonous uniformity of unvaried projects, and which caused a single project often to be broken down and fragmented among different architects. The traditional plain white stone window corniche of the minor historical Venetian architecture is changed in proportion and transfigured into a graphic motif and the crowning of the perimeter walls hides the gable roof required ciho the local regulations, reconducting the volume to an abstract image which is giudecac by the reflection in the canal waters.

Part of the new housing is earmarked for semi-subsidised housing, some of it is for university dormitories, and another part of it for sale. It looks onto a piazza that has been refurbished in line with the general architectural plan.

La Giudecca

The general urban scheme, implemented on the basis of the results of a closed competition won by the author, acts as a sort of microsurgery within the delicate body of the city with gjudecca construction of a new urban fabric and the renovation of existing industrial buildings converted to residential use.

The strategy is explicitly stated, and developed with lucidity and intelligence. The imposed simulated a process of growth or transformation, similar to that of a certain period of the historical city itself, in aspiring to re-establish, or only to suggest, a social, economic and political, hence also urban, complexity.

Evidently many of the potential buyers applying to the real estate agents who are handling the sale of apartments in some of the new buildings erected on the island of Giudecca in the area formerly occupied by the Junghans factories, are not in fact Venetian. The urban layout of the project recognizes the presence of two heterogeneous scales: You can ad links, video’s and even use some HTML!

Cino Zucchi. Five housing blocks in Venice – Domus

Zuccni old industrial structure has been converted to residential use. It is certainly no coincidence that precisely these are the buildings allocated to xucchi buyers. Next to a brick building stands another brick building; the converted industrial building echoes its original guudecca.

Cino Zucchi, winner of the competition for its development, designed five variations on the theme of housing. Some of the industrial buildings have thus been maintained, cut, and transformed, or substituted by other buildings insisting on the same foundations. It conveys a sentimental vision of Venice that updates its image, extending it and broadening it, and enriching it with all those linguistic experiments with the modern from which Venice has been largely excluded.

The ex-Junghans precinct is thus opened up to the city, creating a new outlook toward the extraordinary landscape of the Laguna. Instead it is a slight, elegant and sophisticatedly picturesque view of the modern, immersed in the atmospheres of Venice, in a simulated city.

The new complex is situated at the centre of the island. More projects in Venice.

Beside its specific attributes generated by the very constrained technical and economical reality of subsidised housing, the project is trying to establish a contemporary attitude toward our urban landscape, which treasures the spatial and formal innovations of the Modern Movement without being trapped into its Sachlichkeit moralisms.

Text by Mirko Zardini. A general plan for the whole area an urban improvement scheme was developed from the competition project. An architecture thought in depth, as a structure, has to decompose in a thousand perceptions which have to be reconstructed by another subject, as a different structure, not ours any more. To the north the plan takes up the pattern of the existing fabric, in an intelligent micro-town-planning surgery.

The resistance to urban kitsch, at least in Venice, cannot take the simple forms of structural honesty or adopt fashionable avant-garde attitudes, but forces us to question again the problems of modernity versus permanence and individuality versus the collective artifact of the city. The situation is very different to that of the nearby Sacca Fisola, where the public housing estates built after the war look as if they had been lifted from the anonymous suburbs of the mainland Venetian towns of the s, with their little flowerbeds and lawns to protect the buildings.


The complex of buildings, in part already occupied and that can today be visited, is the outcome of a competition by invitation announced in by a private enterprise in collaboration with the City of Venezia. It should act as a beautiful song: More by Cino Zucchi. Found incorrect or incomplete information? In the case of the new Judeca Nova complex, this intention is evident in the decision to appoint different architects to develop the urban project. We prefer you log in when posting a comment.

From the airport you need only reach Piazzale Roma, and then board the same line of vaporetti. At the same time he delivers the brilliant conclusion of a story begun a few decades ago, with the not very distant house on the Zattere, designed by Ignazio Gardella.

It is actually made up of eight small islands that are interconnected by a number of bridges. The winner was Cino Zucchi. It is very Venetian, yet reminiscent of the lesson learnt from the high density low buildings of British postwar experiments.

Five housing blocks in Venice. This, then, is the crux of the operation.
