In the spring of 1947 Egle Renata Trincanato participates to the call published by the City of Venice for a number of houses to be built in the north and south estuary of the Venetian lagoon, getting the first and the second prize with the residences proposed in Burano and Pellestrina. From this project, you can identify an important consideration on the methodology employed in the design phase: the comparison with history cannot be underestimated. Indeed, Egle invoking clarity of purpose, whished integration between conservation and innovation. She focused her interest on the schematic and repetitive system of some building models and its formal variations. That attention aimed at the monumental architecture, and that analytical approach adopted in the volume Venezia minore, is in the project of houses of Burano and Pellestrina where there is an intention to make clear the features of strict functionality and terse rationalism. The studies carried out by Trincanato on the typical characteristics of minor Venetian architecture influence the design of the houses appearing as the son of the culture of the lagoon city while obeying a modern language. The redrawing aims to highlight the important aspects of this unbuilt project.
