Venice is probably one of the most prominent cities in the western hemisphere facing dramatic consequences in the course of global warming. However, Venice is not just threatening by the rise of its seawter causing recurrent floods, but also by the continuous drought of its clear water due to the over-exploitation of its aquifers causing the city to sink. Thus Venice is currently affected by a douvle threat both arguably engendered by humans. In continuation to our exploitation on buoyancy the ALICE studio will travel to Venice and critically investigate on its existing living conditions and then speculate on new architectural production sensitive of these precarious conditions.
