Summer workshop with Arch. Manuel Aires Mateus
Build a place to live in Venice.
An urban void; a stream, branch, a foundation, a court, a small square or a field; occupying the Grand Canal or lagoon, or an abandoned construction; the invasion of a roof terraces on the roofs, a building, a pavilion or a cloister; through the demolition of a building or the closure of a road, or digging spaces in an underground river; creating of an island, or a tower; building a bridge over the existing city, invading a ruin, a garden or a square, with the purpose of defining the conditions for living in Venice.

The project proposal is a houseboat with a very simple shape, it remembers the archetype of the house that everyone immediately recognize - to resume the idea of the floating World Theatre by Aldo Rossi in Venice.
The house aims to have five internal spaces:
a place for the water, the bath
a place for rest, the bedroom
a place for study, the library,
a place to eat, the kitchen,
a place to share and stay, the living area
Each room has a unique character, which is recognizable to its habitability.
Each space contains an individual intrinsic value, keeping at the same time a relationship with others.
It is a floating house so it can be positioned everywhere along the Lagoon canals.
