Educational Offer


The Iuav has three faculties – Architecture, Regional Planning, and Arts and Design –, all of which have grown out of the original School of Architecture (founded in Venice in 1926). In recent years the Iuav has implemented an unique experiment in “project-based learning” that is the first of its kind in Italy. Theory and technique are integrated with hands-on training that spans the entire planning and design process, from the conception of an idea all the way through to its realisation.
