IUSVE was established in 1993 and is a recognised University Institute associated with the Faculty of Educational Sciences of the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome.
The University offers three three-year degree programmes and four specialisation courses and first and second level master’s degree programmes in social education, psychology and communication sciences in Verona and Venice.
The specialisation course in Multimedia Communications, Marketing and Graphic Design which produced the seven young designers featured in NEXT LANDMARK is intended to educate talented young people in effective management of integrated communications.
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.
DETAIL is one of the world's most influential architectural publications. Architectural professionals benefit from stimulating, up-to-date informative material for design and planning.
Specially prepared detailed scale drawings, supplemented by text and comprehensive keys, offer a unique opportunity to study the very best in contemporary architecture.
The range of publications includes as well expertly researched and hands-on books
Ottagono is a monthly bilingual magazine distributed in Italy and around the world.
The creation of the journal in 1966 by Arflex, Artemide, Bernini, Boffi Cassina, Flos, ICF De Padova and Tecno stems from a strong Italian industrial design tradition. Ottagono is currently reinventing itself while at the same time confirming its expertise by responding to the growing interest that contemporary architecture and design arouses amongst an ever-increasing audience. The current historical period requests responsibility, reflection and speed. As a time-honoured magazine, Ottagono enthusiastically welcomes this challenge and strengthens its position as a dialogue platform between companies and designers, a place where new ideas come to life, a space for growth where disciplines combine and perspectives meet, generating fertile soil for intuitions and alternative solutions.
