International competitions for the regeneration of prominent sites such as the cemetery at San Michele in Isola won by the British architect David Chipperfleld in 1998 have inserted Venice into the international architectural scene. 54 The mayor from 1993 to 2000 was the philosopher Massimo Cacciari, an influential teacher and writer on architectural theory. But above all, the university’s school of architecture, the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, has become one of the world’s leading fora for architectural debate. 55 With its tens of thousands of enrolled students, IUAV draws young people with a committed interest in the built environment from an international catchment area into the city. Many of its teachers and scholars combine architectural practice with historical research, whether linked to individual projects or as parallel fields of activity. Thus a rich and historically grounded dialogue between old and new is continually nourished in lecture halls and design studios, in competitions and exhibitions. Located initially in the disused monastery of San Nicolo dei Tolentini, IUAV began to expand its activities into other redundant buildings on VENICE SINCE THE FALL OF THE REPUBLIC 295 181 Cotonificio di Santa Marta, 1883, converted for the use of iuav, the architecture school of Venice University, late 1990s the western margins of the city. The conversion of the former cotton factory facing the church of San Nicolo dei Mendicoli into studios and lecture halls fig. 181 was followed in 1999 by the adoption of the plan by the Catalan architect Enric Miralles for the former refrigerated warehouses at San Basilio.
