‘modern venice map’ by local architectural historians marco mulazzani, elisa pegorin and photographer alessandra chemollo, highlights the italian city’s surprising range of modernist and contemporary architecture. the two-sided publication includes a map of venice, an introduction, original photography and details of fifty selected buildings, biennale pavilions and vatican chapels. some of the architects featured are the venetian carlo scarpa, and other italian and international names such as alvar aalto, tadao ando, santiago calatrava, david chipperfield, norman foster, rem koolhas, renzo piano, aldo rossi, james stirling, map studio and others.from carlo scarpa to tadao ando, new map surveys venice's modern architectural landscapeponte della constituzion / constitution bridge, santiago calatrava, 1996, 2001-08

 

 

the buildings included on the map make it clear that modern architecture, far from an aberration, is a natural continuation of venice’s remarkable history. ‘the map shows that venice continues to express and cradle international culture through the diverse but complementary languages of its new architecture,’ write marco mulazzani and elisa pegorin in the introduction.from carlo scarpa to tadao ando, new map surveys venice's modern architectural landscapepadiglione del venezuela / venezuela pavilion (giardini della biennale), carlo scarpa, 1953-56
