Design of the Cultural Center (extension of the School of Architecture), on the docks of Venice, 4100 m2 (auditorium, bookshop, amphitheatres, restaurant, gallery)

Scenario :
1) Destruction of the concrete warehouses (preserving a virtual ghost print of the building).
2) Digital water sucking up and wave motion on the programming layers.
3) Cutting of the sucking up according to the print of the pre-existent building.
4) Constitution of an internal and external PVC membrane.
5) Vegetal lagoon growth by capillary sucking up (in double plastic and transparent wall for an "acqua alta" exacerbation).
