Entry Description

Tourism has been a problem for locals in Venice, especially when it comes to cruise ships, which not only cause protests for the negative environmental impacts but the damage on the building's foundations. The proposed relocation of the cruise ship terminal satisfies the locals' requests and brings a new opportunity for them to interact with the tourists. This project presents spaces such as a courtyard, market, soccer field, park, café, performance space, and more that serve the purpose to bring both locals and tourists together, this way forming a community.
