Guided tours dedicated to architect Tadao Ando

Fabrica, in collaboration with Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana, adds a new date to the calendar of free itineraries dedicated to Tadao Ando’s architecture and hosts a guided tour of Fabrica, a seventeenth-century mansion renovated by the Japanese architect in the 1990’s.

The initiative is part of a special program of events organized by Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana dedicated to architecture with a focus on the work of Japanese architect Tadao Ando, who led the restoration of the exhibition venues of the Pinault Collection in Venice, of the Teatrino of Palazzo Grassi and who is currently engaged in the renovation works of the former Bourse de Commerce in Paris, the new permanent space of the Pinault Collection, to open in 2019.

The next appointment to visit Fabrica’s spaces is scheduled for Friday, November 9 at 5.00pm followed by a free conference by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini, architect and professor, titled  “R.r.Riuso.riusi”, at 6.30 pm, Fabrica Auditorium.
