Piazza San Marco’s Climate Pavilion

A design concept in Design 4A; a pavilion in Venice to express a dialogue about the ruination of architecture with cultural heritage due to the sudden rise of climate. Particularly the high tides in Venice.

The climate pavilion consists of a façade which slowly degrades over time, revealing the lightweight structure behind whilst metaphorically protecting a building within it, specifically a Venetian building with lots of cultural heritage.
