A small competition project.
The Rotatoria_AMPDV (Aeroporto Marco Polo di Venezia) is a renovation to the large roundabout on the way to Venice. It is a hovering pool, balanced on a dome, housing a multiplicity of community made islands – they each contribute their own character. Potted plants have islands of their own to call home, locally chosen – whilst sculpted birds soar above and dazzle the islanders below. The underside of the pool is fully accessible to pedestrians; the water is still. The project seeks the complex Venetian spectacle with a simple pastoral specificity.
