OMA presents the urban renewal of two European cities at Venice Biennale

French and Italian urban renewal proposals presented at Venice architecture Biennale. At the 11th International Architecture Biennale of Venice the Office for Metropolitan Architecture exhibits urban regeneration proposals for the business district of La Défense in Paris and for the neglected fishing port of Saint'Elia in Cagliari, Italy.

La Défense Masterplan

OMA’s design for La Défense, presented in the Carlo Scarpa restored Querini Stampalia building, is curated by Francis Rambert, alongside 12 other proposals for the area. OMA’s scheme stems from the recognition of La Défense’s struggle to maintain and expand its position on the international scene. The masterplan proposes to create a nodal point that transforms La Défense into a compact and efficient business district by creating a new central transit stop in the middle of the district with an internal shuttle that extends to the neighbouring district of Les Groues – to bring in life and also distribute to surrounding neighbourhoods.

Regeneration of Saint’Elia

OMA’s design for Saint’Elia is presented in the Italian Pavilion, in the section «Housing Italy – 12 Projects for Inhabiting and Re-inhabiting the City», curated by Francesco Garofalo. Garofalo invited a team of Italian architects to explore a series of challenges posed by the quest for quality homes in the era post subsidised housing. OMA’s design is used in a conceptual proposal produced by the Italian architecture firm Salottobuono whilst other contributors investigate proposals such as the residential conversion of industrial areas and the settlement of foreign communities immigrating to Italy.

The Italian Pavilion is located in the first Tesa delle Vergini at the Venice Arsenale while the Querini Stampalia is located in the sestieri of Castello – both will be open until November 23.

OMA’s La Defense contribution is made possible by collaboration with EPAD and the Amsterdam based architecture and planning firm One Architecture. The Italian Pavilion is supported by AREA & the Italian Ministry for Cultural Affairs and Activities.
