Archivio Progetti


Iuav Archivio Progetti was founded within the Fondazione Angelo Masieri in 1987 and has been actively engaged in researching, acquiring, organising and publishing XX and XXI century architecture archives ever since. It is an international reference point for organisation techniques, especially in field of architecture archives.

The project archive is primarily aimed at Iuav students, teaching staff and researchers but it also intended for external institutions, researchers, curators and professionals at large.

The mission of the project archive is to foster historical-critical studies, interdisciplinary research and teaching collaborations, in order to encourage the debate on architecture and design heritage, intended as activators of social, political and cultural processes.

Exhibitions, events, lectures and publications are an integral part of the mission to promote scientific knowledge.





The policy of collection acquisition started by focusing on the contributions of the master architects and urban planners of the Scuola di Venezia (among them, Giovanni Astengo, Giuseppe Samoną, Egle Renata Trincanato, Giancalo De Carlo, Gianugo Polesello, Giuseppe Torres, Ferdinando Forlati, Luciano Semerani and Gigetta Tamaro) and soon after opened up to photography (Giorgio Casali, Mauro Masera, G. E. Kidder Smith), design and decorative arts (Luca Meda, Paolo De Poli and Diego Birelli), in this way reflecting the interdisciplinary approach of our university.
