Salazar, Guillermo F.
The island of Sant'Erasmo, or "The Garden of Venice," was once the agricultural center of the Venetian lagoon; however now 1/3 of farmland is abandoned, making it a target for development. To preserve the rural landscape, typologies were defined for the existing buildings for use in future construction. Furthermore, a system was devised to utilize the abandoned farm fields and waterways on the island that will ultimately maintain the historical integrity and ambiance characteristic of the Venetian lagoon.
