Changes in the government of Venice heavily influenced Venice’s art, architecture, and infrastructure. After creating a specific research method, the team added to 25 years of WPI’s research by documenting displaced artwork, demolished churches, and filled-in canals. A platform, including an interactive website and timeline map web application, was created to display not only our data, but data collected by future teams as well. Additionally, a smartphone game to raise awareness about “Missing Venice” was designed.
