Project 1 Roma

So I finally got a chance to go see the site of our first project we had been talking about this whole time. I'm pretty impressed I have to say. Our assignment is to design a space for ancient greek/roman musical performance, practice, and display. The site is an ancient church in centro roma, one that has been renovated many times over, and I have to say one of the most interesting parts of this project, its the building itself. The physical layers you can see on the interior, the masking and remaking, reshaping that has been taking for hundreds of years is shown throughout, and to represent this quality is going to be the first priority in my design. Check out this place!
