Resumé

The question of the critical role of our built heritage to the complex and interdisciplinary processes that govern the current development of the built environment define a continuous challenge in interior studies and education: Can a study of the fundamental interior elements of Villa Rotonda for example inspire future architectural solutions that meet the current environmental challenges?

In our paper we study this question by recalling Foucault’s idea of Heterotopia describing spaces that have more layers of meaning than those that immediately meet the eye. We interpret Heterotopia as a concept of human geography as elaborated by Foucault and apply it on a project developed and exhibited on the 14th International Architecture Biennale in Venice that focused on the current need to develop Urban Farming strategies. Here an interdisciplinary team of students analyzed fundamental interior elements of the Villa Rotunda, a study that turned out to function in non-hegemonic conditions with departure in elements i.e. – floor, wall, ceiling, roof, door, window etc. tracing the history of the past and subsequently transforming them. Pedagogically this educational experiment was carried out by learning in a series of nomadic interiors allowing the students to travel in time and place; from Palladio to the 14th Architectural Biennale and from Vincenza to Venice. In the paper we use Foucaults concept of Heterotopia to analyze how a window in 1:10 from the south façade of Villa Rotonda now re-designed in caramelized sugar can create a parallel learning space; an interior that make a utopian space possible.
