In 2014, as part of the Venice Architecture Biennale, Florencia Costa carried out a project that involved repurposing Palazzo Mora, one of the city’s historic buildings.


She conceived a methodology of action – “Who’s Afraid of Architecture” – and, reminiscent of Le Corbusier’s final project (the Civil Hospital in Venice), created a series of artists’ residences in the attic along with a new exhibition walkway. The architect transformed what already existed, dismantling it, reassembling it, revealing the primary and secondary wooden structure typically used to build Venetian palazzi, and eliminating the traces of bourgeois life that over time had become stratified in the areas originally destined for the service staff.
