LOCATION ISOLA DI POVEGLIA E OTTAGONO (VE). ITALY
The project is based on two principles: the first regarding transportation as a solution to reduce the water boat traffic and the second one defines a strategy on how to intervene on the site. This two ideas are linked by the intention of leaving the island to its actual conditions. The lack of green areas in Venice raised the need for a city park where residential buildings are left to the surrounding shoreline. The project defines three paths that extend their footprint on the water creating piers that embrace the new houses. The housing design is based on the traditional Venice area fishermans houses named Casone. The arches below the houses recall to the Venice bridges. The cable car transportation system reduces the traffic and takes a shorter time compared to the ferry boat to connect the Poveglia island to Venice.
