Urban Intervention Camp: CasaMare is an ongoing collaborative project that began as a three-day event at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition of the 2012 Venice Biennale. The project was commissioned by the 2012 U.S. Pavilion Curators at the Venice Biennale.
The workshops began as an exploration on how cultural events like the Venice Biennale can provide a platform/model for the exchange of ideas and experiences from different contexts with integration and outreach to local communities. This bureaucratic and social challenge was explored through the evaluation of the spatial exchange between public and private sectors in the island of Lido with local architects, community groups, public officials and activists.
The goal of the UIC was to reveal the myriad of interconnected political, economic, social and physical design issues that affect the use of common spaces and to create a collaborative framework that allows participants in the U.S. and Italy to create an ongoing dialogue. The UIC: CasaMare is planned as a long-term commitment to on-the-ground action with local players.
