This project examined the availability of basic necessities and the decline of residential comfort in Venice, Italy by exploring the impact of economic changes through the cataloging of current shops, recording their transformations over time integrating changing population data, and proposing methods for the improvement of residential comfort in the city. Additional databases and map layers were created using data collected by the team along with a complete analysis of the comfort level of two sestieri, as far back as 1970.
