Project Website

This project began in 2009 as an initiative that uses archival sources (documents, plans, images) to map growth and change in the city of Venice. It is a collaboration with the University of Venice (IUAV) and the Department of Engineering at the University of Padua. The team now consists of about 30 faculty, post-docs and graduate students, and at Duke we are developing a series of inititives that also involve undergraduates in courses and in independent research projects with Prof. Kristin Lanzoni. A new initiative is being developed with the Nicholas School of Duke University that explores the connection between the natural and man-made environments of the city of Venice and its lagoon. We have set up a digital laboratory at Venice International University and had our first international training workshop there.
