Description
This is the second time that Italian lighting producer Artemide is running the Artemide Lighthouse Competition for students. In keeping with the company’s philosophy of “responsible light”, Artemide’s aim is to give students an opportunity to plan and design taking a forward-looking, international and innovative approach. The company is looking for basic approaches that deliberately go beyond established examples and explore the dividing lines between staging, art and architecture. The global brand is using the city of Venice – home to the 2012 Architecture Biennale – as the setting for the competition.
Under the title “Città Immaginarie” scenographic solutions are being sought for the urban area of Venice. With the “Lighthouse Competition”, Artemide is assuming responsibility for encouraging young architects over the long term.
