The Port and the Fall of Icarus
The project, ideated by Hamed Khosravi, Taneha Kuzniecow Bacchin, and Filippo LaFleur, is composed of four complementary components: an installation inside the Dutch Pavilion with fourteen drawings and seven models, a public installation at Riva dei Sette Martiri in Venice, two public events in Venice and Rotterdam and a publication.

Departing from a rather critical proposition on the rationale of logistics, and in particular the port, the project seeks possible scenarios for the future development of the port with respect to its relationship to the city, its territory, and forms of labour. These scenarios have been generated through a year-long research and educational program in collaboration with TU Delft and IUAV Venezia.

The Port and the Fall of Icarus could have not been possible without the intellectual and financial support of Het Nieuwe Instituut, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment TU Delft Urbanism TU Delft, Port of Venice, Port of Rotterdam, LDE Center for Metropolis and Mainport, TU Delft DIMI– Delft Deltas, Infrastructures & Mobility Initiative and L’Ermitage Venezia
