The main focus was to aid Venice in creating a balance between conservation and adaptation. Our project finalized the 2002 WPI Palaces catalogue and the 1999 WPI Churches database. We also created a computerized catalogue of convents based on information taken from 1968 by UNESCO. In addition, we created an impact analysis of adaptive reuse within the areas surrounding Santo Stefano and Madonna dell'Orto. Through our project, we also assembled a "touristicity index" comparing the number of residents, number of hotel beds and number of tourist services within each census tract.
