Map Of The Voids is an archipelago of landscape elements capable to start a reversible destiny and to encourage the use of the Venice lagoon as a public and recreational place to discover: a great resource that is not just linked to its environmental value but that is also a potential amplifier for the social and economical dynamics of Venice.
The park of the lagoon becomes the centre of this infrastructural net taking the shape of a large natural wood setting itself against the artificiality of Venice. It’s a new soil saturated of trees, as a metaphor of the contemporary city, where the public spaces are more and more enclosed in big boxes like new urban monuments.
