conceptual venice university island developed by flt-office

 

italian studio flt-office’s exploration of the needs of contemporary higher education has led to a conceptual ‘university campus’ for venice. accessed like any other island in the area, two small mooring areas carry guests and students via boat. a well-connected path leads around and through the campus, providing access to college buildings, an outdoor theatre, restaurant, and other public oriented areas.

the island’s student housing consists of modular residential blocks focused toward the eastern side. pre-fabrication allowed the creation of of proper accommodations, and also flexibility to take on infrastructure in the future. ‘venice university island’ was designed by flt-office.
