San Basilio Terminal

San Basilio terminal, Venice. 2014.
This project was designed during the Cities of Art and Tourism Workshop that took place in Venice in July 2014. It was designed in collaboration with Alicia Guiterrez De La Camara Jimenez, Federico Fontana, and Valentine Pinson.
The site is located on the hinge between the large ferry terminals and the Dorsoduro district. Our aim was to make a connection between those two completely different environments.
Our proposal redefines the old San Basilio terminal into a tramway station and an information center, as the city plans to extend its public transportations network. We also re-shaped the public space in order to make room for potential crowds that would go from and to the harbour area to San Basilio with the tramway.
