The Palladian Villa’s use of proportion, scale, and order allowed for a systematic development of its architecture. With these systems, the field condition below was developed. The field drawing translated Palladian ideas to overlap, interlock and overlaying surfaces.
The overlapping surfaces allowed for public connection between Villa Emo and the Venetian city to the West. The path is used for biking, walking, or resting when passing through the institute.
Considering Italy’s high water table, the institute uses this as an advantage by including small areas of water to collect for food production for the students.
Food, such as mushrooms, are grown in areas that do not receive much sunlight during the day. Within the institute, a system of boundaries blend both exterior and interior conditions. These boundaries allow for certain areas of private and public experiences within. Moments of transition are included to have a sense of leisure and relaxation within the space. Whether it is a simple step or a long ramp, the feeling of transition makes the culinary students feel at home.
