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.
