Ss. Giovanni e Paolo Hospital, Venice

On Thursday 30 November 2023, The Future of the Architectural Project for Health conference was held at the Santi Giovanni e Paolo Hospital in Venice. The main objective was to present the new post-graduate master’s programme in Architecture and Health offered by the Iuav University of Venice, and to publicise the work currently under way in the national and international healthcare sector.

With the aim of specialising architects and engineers in the design, construction and management of hospital and social-health facilities, while focusing on their integration with the city and the therapeutic qualities of urban spaces, the course offers an educational programme that addresses specific emergencies with a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. It is a response to the needs and innovation processes of healthcare, prevention and support for vulnerable people during rehabilitation phases and for the general improvement of their quality of life.

The conference and the master’s programme are the result of the partnership between Iuav University and Ulss3 Serenissima, and benefit from the support of VSFP and numerous companies operating in the healthcare sector.

The conference was organised by Caterina Frisone, Scientific Director of the Master’s in Architecture and Health, Iuav University of Venice. For more information:
