Blue Moon, Piazzale Bucintoro 1 – 30126 Lido Di Venezia.
Shadow triangles move slowly across the wooden decking as the sun moves across the sky.
The ‘Blue Moon’ was designed by Giancarlo de Carlo (1919-2005), professor emeritus at the Venice School of Architecture (Università Iuav di Venezia), founded in 1926 as the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia.
The building project began in 1995 and the main construction was completed by 2002.
It stands at the intersection between the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta (a road that crosses the Lido from the point where passengers from Venice disembark) and the coast road that goes from the Murazzi to the sand dunes of San Nicolò and serves the spiaggia comunale (public beach) at the northern end of the Lido. https://witness.theguardian.com/assignment/55718213e4b019d982cba15c/1563276
