Una Porta per Venezia

my favourite project

We had two weeks to submit this competition project for a bus station on the island of venice, so – we flooded the site and put a bucky fuller dome (al la louvre) floating in the middle. We should have won, imagine arriving in venice in this amazing semi-submerged dome, taking an escalator up and being surrounded by water in this hi-tech dome in the heart of venice.

  1. Looks very innovative, more like aqua park than conventional bus station.

    • It was supposed to have a very delicate structure a bit like Eden Project, many years ago now, but i loved this student project. I think Jermey Dixon Architects won the actual competition.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
