Burano is a small, carfree island 7 kilometers north
of Venice proper. Burano has its own architectural style,
more intimate than Venice, with tightly packed houses.
There are no gardens, so the area is quite dense despite
the low-rise, single-family houses. Some green space is
found at the periphery of the island. Burano is a valid
model for carfree districts. Unlike Venice, Burano is
richly colored. I photographed extremes, but the whole
place looks like this.
