I met with a group of Venetian teachers in June to explore ways in which drawing and close looking can be applied in new ways in their teaching. I wanted to provide an opportunity for them to look again at the area around Via Garibaldi, introduce them to the British pavilion and the work of muf for the architecture Biennale. We worked with the Biennale education department to enable these links with local schools. This is the first time an architecture practice, exhibiting at the Biennale, has worked with local schools.

Are there things about the design of a public space, street, square or alley that encourage certain behaviours? How do the built infrastructure and the social infrastructure relate?

Ten years of research into people’s approaches to safety and joy in city streets is now applied in Venice, Italy in collaboration with muf architecture\art as part of the Venice Architecture Biennale.

We have made a few changes to the web site to make it easier for Street Trainers to find and talk to each other. Check the Groups section in the Main Menu to find your group or a group near you.

If you have already made an account, please check the section "My account" and edit your information to include your group (and any other information about yourself that you want to add), so that other Street Trainers can find you. If you haven't made an account yet, why don't you do that right now? Interested Onlookers are also welcome!

Street Training Course - weekly throughout the summer - apply now!
