Proposal for a University on the Island of Poveglia:
"We refuse to build on the island and to participate in the politics of gentrification. We believe that the utopian project of architecture is dead, which is the precise reason for reinventing it. Our aim is to preserve the magic and the stories, and invent new ones. We propose a platform with 33 buildings, encircling the island, fulfilling the requested programme. The island becomes an oasis, and the buildings take the role of strange Venetian characters congregating for a Bal Masqué.
The real is a strange place, get over it."
