Apartment Building D, Giudecca

This building is part of a large urban renewal plan on the site of the former Junghans industrial plant on the island of the Giudecca. The general urban scheme, implemented on the basis of the results of a closed competition won by the author, acts as a sort of microsurgery within the delicate body of the city with the construction of a new urban fabric and the renovation of existing industrial buildings converted to residential use. The D building is a new construction which substitutes an utilitarian building on the corner between two canals.
