To raise public awareness of the theme of the abandoned islands in the lagoon, a temporary installation was created with the students. Entitled ‘The Non Island’, the installation intends to represent a piece of nature in the city and involves transforming a Venetian cargo boat into a temporary island with plants and lagoon elements. The installation was part of a joint workshop at the Biennial Sessions 2016 between the IUAV University of Venice, Milan Polytechnic and Hanover University. Action and reaction are a peaceful protest movement to involve public opinion, endorse the right to the city and the priority of a common heritage. The work is a symbolic act of how to support a project of common utility with simple formulas, starting from the bottom up, where planning is a stimulus to doing things together, as well as thinking.
