REVERBERATING COURTYARDS: CARVING IDENTITIES_ VENICE BIENNALE

 

Rediscovery of the courtyard: evolution instead of repetition

The proposal focuses on the notion of the courtyard.

It aims to educate the visitor on the historical background of the courtyards and its evolution over time.  The courtyard will be explored and revived.  Examples will be shown illustrating how it has been re-invented and re-interpreted over time – through the centuries till today.  The proposal attempts to focus on the development of the courtyard, corresponding to the establishment of certain strong and vital social characteristics of the Island.  Responses to new ways of living as dictated by contemporary needs will also be explored.
