This summer, Whitney Shanks (M. Arch ’15) and Marina Lodi (MFA Lighting ’15 and MFA Interior Design ’15) took part in a design project organized by Design Apart. They collaborated with students from Domus Academy and IUAV Digital Architecture to design the penthouse suite for the Hotel Flora, located just off Piazza San Marco in Venice. The video below details the student’s work on the design phase of this project, which is scheduled to open in spring of 2016.
