The Ship was founded in Venice, at IUAV’s Architecture Faculty by a group of students during spring 2012. The publication’s main aim was to provide to the whole academic community of our university a place for reflection, trying to emphasise a critical approach. The Ship was a “single sheet” printed magazine inspired by AA's Fulcrum, published thanks to the funding from the IUAV’s Students Senate, with a Risograph printer.
The Ship refuses the idea of architectural publishing as a narcissistic or commercial practice and focuses on its essence which is sharing knowledge, for this reason it is free and distributed mainly in universities.
For every issue a specific theme is chosen: on one side of the sheet are presented two written contributions; on the other an image which complements the articles, adding a third – non verbal – point of view. The Ship presented on its pages contributions by: Pier Vittorio Aureli, Marco Biraghi, Pippo Ciorra, Matteo Ghidoni, Renato Rizzi, Jack Self, Pier Paolo Tamburelli and Francesco Zorzi among others.
