Competition: we've teamed up with designers Cibicworkshop to give away five construction games based on iconic buildings by renaissance architect Andrea Palladio.
Called The Play of Combinations, each collector's set comprises hand-made ceramic blocks that demonstrate the modularity of Palladio's designs.
The sets were created in 2008 to celebrate Palladio's 500th birthday.
We have three models of Villa La Rotonda and two models of Villa Emo to give away.
This competition is organised in collaboration with the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio in Venice. Buy the game at their CISA Bookshop.
This competition is now closed. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the bottom of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
Here's some more information from Cibicworkshop:
On the occasion of the exhibition for the 500th anniversary of the birth of Andrea Palladio, the CISA (Centre for International Studies of Architecture Andrea Palladio) presented the “Game of the Villa”, a refined collectors construction game (the pieces are in ceramics) that illustrates the striking Palladian design modularity, based on an idea of Howard Burns, developed by Mauro Zocchetta with the art direction of CibicWorkshop.
The ceramic elements of the game are made of soft, light-coloured earth, which is formed in plaster moulds, finished and then decorated with non-toxic water colours; the work is carried out entirely by hand by master ceramists. It should be noted that each small, minor defect is in itself an indication and a typical feature of the manual production process.
Made in Nove, Italy, by Stylnove.
Concept: Howard Burns
Design: Mauro Zocchetta
