If Walter Benjamin prophetically understood the complex relationships between high-brow and popular culture in the age of technical reproduction, one wonders about the possibilities of contemporary architecture to employ the resonances of the well-known and the banal without falling into the pastiches of commercial architecture which is transforming the whole world into a commodified skin-deep image.

In the case of the new Judeca Nova complex, this intention is evident in the decision to appoint different architects to develop the urban project. In the City Council has initiated the Giudecca Project. The materials and the technical solutions of the building zzucchi very traditional and the details of their use reveal the impossibility of an historicist replica.

Beside its specific attributes generated by the very constrained technical and economical reality of subsidised housing, the project is trying to establish a contemporary attitude toward our urban landscape, which treasures the spatial and formal innovations of the Modern Movement without being trapped into its Sachlichkeit moralisms.
