Iuav University of Venice was established in 1926 as one of the first Architecture Schools in Italy. To this day, it still maintains its unique status. It is a design-themed university focusing on the teaching, research and practice in the design of living spaces and environments (buildings, cities, landscapes and territory) and in the design of everyday use objects, of fashion and of graphics.
Based at Iuav, the Planning Climate Change research group recognizes the spatial planning as part of the complex and dynamic set of relationships between man and nature. Planning Climate Change is composed of young researchers with different skills and experiences and performs theoretical and applied, innovative and multidisciplinary researches. The consolidated experience of group’s researchers, with different and complementary specializations, guarantees them the possibility to provide an integrated and synergic vision of spatial planning. Maritime spatial planning (MSP) is, among others, a main research focus at Planning Climate Change which has collaborated to support the implementation of the MSP in the Mediterranean through several European projects.
The research group’s main feature is the ability to coordinate and manage all phases of research and project, from the initial design up to the implementation.
The research group works with several organizations, professionals and technicians to deal with the complexity and the multidisciplinary nature required by the research topic.
