Promoted by Klimahouse, YACademy's first edition of the Wood Architecture course aims at training architects who are capable of using wood to make sustainable architecture which has a great visual impact and represents the renovated balance between human needs and nature.

The course offers three scholarships with full coverage of the enrollment cost for the most deserving students as well as the option to participate in the courses remotely.

With a wide range of classes, special lectures, visits and workshops, the course in wood architecture hosts numerous interventions by well-known professionals, such as Kengo Kuma, Dagur Eggetsson, Patrick Lüth (Snøhetta), Michele de Lucchi, Lukas Rungger (NOA) and Lars Johan Almgren (Dorte Mandrup Architects).

Carried out in collaboration with Dorte Mandrup Architects and Vento di Venezia, concessionary company of the Certosa island since 2002, the course's workshop will focus on the renovation of the restaurant and the development of lodge modules, on-land and floating, to increase the accommodation potential of the island.

In addition, YACademy offers its students the opportunity to participate in the process of producing their own ideas.

Students will gain practical experience on construction sites and, above all, the authorship of projects built for excellent commissions, destined for a major media echo and capable of defining a turning point in their professional career.

To conclude the course, each student will carry out a period of collaboration with one of YACademy's partner firms.

Such collaboration will have a minimum duration of two months and guaranteed remuneration consistently with regulatory requirements.
