WAVE 2011_workshop of architecture in Venice

"A concrete block of 1,070 cubic meters: this is the" dowry "brought to the province of Vicenza, one of the most industrialized of Italy, of every inhabitant in most of the nineties. Population growth: more than 52 000 inhabitants, equivalent to 3%. Building growth: more than 56 million cubic meters, equivalent to a ten meter wide shed, high ten and 560 km long. (...) ... For each arrived in Vicenza in several decades have been pulled over 3,718 cubic meters of concrete. Equivalent to a 10m x 10m shed 37 meters long. Could this be the development of tomorrow? "
(Gian Antonio Stella, Allarme, il Veneto scoppier√†. Di capannon, il Corriere della sera  september 18, 2004)

The North East of Italy would not be such without the jumble of warehouses that between the eighties and nineties have occupied the territory, fostering economic growth without equal.
The Shed has become in a short time, the molecular TEMPLE of capitalism.
But what are the warehouses? A new type? A new urban form? A new landscape?
Today, after the rapid processes of globalization and outsourcing, with the world crisis of 2008 most of this heritage has been abandoned.
What do these skeletons kept alive only as unused capital tied to the financial guarantee business?
Since the case of former Elba in Bassano del Grappa, the workshop seeks to develop, through devices POP-UP, a strategy to rethink that large shed 10m x 10m and 560 km long that twists into the North East.
