summary The research that is presented here was developed to understand the impact of a new building in a very delicate context, such as the venetian one. The case study was a very important project for the history of architecture, because it is the only design by Frank L. Wright for an Italian customer. The Masieri Memorial was projected by the author on Canal Grande and near the Rialto bridge. The very detailed drawings and notes helped us to reconstruct in digital form the architecture, to study the representation of it in Venice and to verify the effect with the other ancient venetian palaces, such as Palazzo Balbi. The simulation was taken to the photorealistic perception, applying all the textures and materials as found in the sketches and reserved notes of the architect. The final step was the realization of a video to simulate the perception from a boat and the materialization of a maquette using the Rapid Prototyping techniques, in nylon powder.
