What does it mean to live in Venice? The next “itinerant conversation” in the “Walking (the) Trajectories” series will lead participants through the alleyways of Castello in the company of the architects from Babau Bureau, reflecting on how living is an action of mutual care between people and environment, between companies and cities. If the spaces for sharing are places capable of influencing the behavior and lifestyles of communities, the actions of those who live in a place become an active component in the protection and transformation of a system, involving both spatial and temporal dimensions.

In Venice, these dimensions find a place in which they can blend together: here the water articulates time and configures spaces, determining the methods and possibilities of their use in both the short and long term.

Babau Bureau

Babau Bureau is an architecture and landscape studio based in Venice, founded in 2012 by architects Marco Ballarin, Stefano Tornieri and Massimo Triches. They have dealt with design issues on various scales through working on projects such as the SMACT Innovation Center in San Giobbe (Venice), the new Fontamara di Pescina (AQ) school campus, the Ceto Cimbergo Paspardo park of rock engravings in Valcamonica, nominated for the 2019 Mies Van Der Rohe Award. In addition to professional practice, they carry out academic research at the Iuav University of Venice, publishing on topics relating to public space, health and care of the city, wetland landscapes and transitional environments, and the redevelopment of urban centers.
