This is due to the fact that the city of Venice consists of 118 small islands connected by numerous canals and bridges. Yet, the buildings in Venice were not built directly on the islands. Instead, they were built upon wooden platforms that were supported bywooden stakes driven into the ground. The map

ENBE | Final Project| Part A ProcessJournal Report Compilation | Pamphlet & Model Representation Isyraq Nasir | 0322177 | Tutorial Group d | FNBE JAN 2015 | Taylors University Page 9 The city of Venice was built on wooden foundations. The use of wood as a supporting structure may seem as a surprise, since wood is relatively less durable than stone or metal. The secret to the longevity of Venices wooden foundation is the fact that they are submerged underwater. The decay of wood is caused by microorganisms, such as fungi and bacteria. As the wooden support in Venice is submerged underwater, they are not exposed to oxygen, one of the elements needed by microorganisms to survive. In addition, the constant flow of salt water around and through the wood petrifies the wood over time, turning the wood into a hardened stone-like structure.

The designers made wonderful use of the mountain landscape and water flows and magnified the spirit of the land and waters. Following the undulation of the mountainous landscape, the town walls encircle the ridges and span over the ranges while rivers wind along the corridors before flowing out through the town. It is thus by absorbing the artistic philosophy of traditional Chinese garden design and making best of the limited space of the mountain area that the town achieves well-structured layout. Especially those timber-structured stilt houses which line along the river looks so picturesque against the Nanhua Mountain full of big old trees. A river with mountain shadows and a town covered by the green shades has made the town the perfect example for the harmonious integration between human and nature and a masterpiece of ancient Chinese architectural arts.
