Ilaria Di Carlo Architects @ Italian Pavillion, Comunità resilienti. Venice Architecture Biennale 2020/21
IDC_Architects will be present at the Italian Pavillion ‘Comunità Resilienti’ at the Venice Architecture Biennale 20/21:
The exhibition is the result of an amazing act of love and dedication by RebelArchitette, in collaboration with Alessandro Melis, that in a curatorial project, have chosen the excellence among Italian women architects as “a choral project of both research and representation that does not propose exclusive selection formulas, but which, on the contrary, favors new interpretations of the profession still invisible to the general public.”
But most importantly that “this expanded representation of excellence will not only become an active, democratic tool, open to those who want to involve you (ndr. women architects) in events, collaborations and why not even in projects, but also demonstrates how much we care most: the great power of support between professionals and your presence as role models for the new generations of professionals.”

ACADIA2020: nominated Scientific Committee member
We are very excited to share the news that Ilaria Di Carlo has been appointed as a member of the Scientific Committee of the ACADIA2020 Conference ‘Distributed proximities’ which will take place Online+ Global from the 26 to the 30th of October 2020.

The organization is committed to the research and development of computational methods that enhance design creativity, rather than simply production, and that aim at contributing to the construction of humane physical environments. A particular focus is education and the software, hardware and pedagogy involved in education.
This year topic,Distributed Proximities, will elaborate on the idea that abrupt shifts due to the global pandemic have precipitated myriad experiments in remoteness, improvised virtual communities, and rapid retooling to address novel urgencies. These circumstances provide an opportunity to reflect upon practices and priorities, to recognize the interdependent coevolutionary nature of our planet, society, and built environment, and to collectively re-imagine alternate futures.

Revealed the first images of the Al-Qasim Museum and Cultural Centre, Rameh_Israel
After some very interesting months of intensive work, we are proud to share with you the first images of the Samih al-Qasim museum and cultural center – ( Rameh-Galilee)
The project stands on the burying ground of the late Palestinian poet Samih Al-Qasim. (1939-2014), one of the foremost Palestinian and Arab poets and a major figure in the Arab world. It is meant to represent not only a place of remembrance but also a place of inspiration for the new generations.
