Delft 1

On Monday 23rd October 2017, wahv met with a group of architecture masters students from TU Delft led by Sereh Mandias and Sam De Vocht. We took them on a walk around Venice to talk about the city’s social and environmental context, in which they will develop their masters projects.

The talk took as its starting point the rising tension between the pressures of mass tourism and Venice as a lived-in city, going on to look at the Venetian campo as a locus of civic life, addressing the rising water levels and what these mean for the city, as well as the decline of inhabitants in the city.
