Floating Shell


 

 

Thinking about Venice, the first detail that comes to my mind is the typical GONDOLA. Gondola has been one of the main means of transportation in Venice over the last 500 years. Today, there are approximately two hundred Gondola navigating the canals of Venice and they look very different if compared to those used in the past. So i wanted to continue the way of evolution.. I was thinking about to adapt the waterway transport system to the climatic change and degradation of the water resources in Venice. This way of thinking brought me to the idea to mutate the gondola in a multifunctional boat. My “Floating Shell” make balance between the human actions and the respect of environment.

The mane function is water recycling and purifying of the pollutions, which are coming from industry, agriculture and domestic.

New mutant-boat is a mixture of people, nature, biotechnologies and water respect.

Inspiration for design comes from the original name of Gondola – “gondulam”, that probably comes from the Latin word “cuncula” – a small shell

I hope that this little innovative movement will enable better and life with more quality for Venetians and tourists as well.
