Suspended between land and sea, the landscape of the project is Venice lagoon. The design of the museum and the cultural centre by the restoration of the complex of Torre Massimiliana is part of a huger design which regards the whole Island and its infrastructures: new docks, squares, bridges, car parking, first-aid hospital and a depuration structure. The project aims to reconstruct the complex system defined by the monument, its embankments, the docks, the beach and the farmlands insinuated between these elements, with these primary objectives:
-the preservation of Torre Massimiliana as testimonial of a unique military defence construction;
-the construction of a system of infrastructures that today guarantees the functionality of these space assigning specific but complementary roles to all new constructions.
