The analysis supplied all the teams lots of knowledge, enabling all students to start directly with their projects. These are days of hard work and a continuous exchange is maintained between the different schools to keep the spirit of the Iacobus+ program in this virtual workshop.
March 9, 2020: finally, the Iacobus+ International Virtual Workshop has started at ENSACF, NUACA and UDC and the german team will join us soon. The project topic is the addition of museum, craft printing workshop and shelter accommodation for refugees to the monastery of the island of San Lazzaro degli Armeni.
The site selected for the Iacobus+2020 edition will be San Lazzaro degli Armeni in Venezia, Italia.
The French and Armenian teaching teams have jointly decided to propose this fantastic location to celebrate a special edition of the Iacobus program.
The delegations from the four academic institutions (OTH, UDC, ENSACF and NUACA) have just meet in Venice to visit the island and decided the program for a museum, craft printing workshop and shelter accommodation for refugees, continuing with the history of the island and monastery of San Lazzaro.
The International Workshop will be from 9th to 13th of March in Venezia. See you there soon!
The work in this first day of the workshop started with a presentation of the analysis work by students from the ENSA Clermont-Ferrand and from the Universidad da Coruña. Them both were impressive and it was a very interesting session session focused on the history of the island, the history of Venice, the Mekhitarists, the refugee situation, typological analysis and contemporary architectural references.
