Project title
Six Architectures in Search of an Author
Project description

In Six Architectures in Search of an Author, we will create a collection of visual stories featuring six well-known Roman edifices. Told through a variety of forms and points of view, our stories will eschew the traditional narratives generally used to depict historical works of architecture to reveal new ways of seeing them in relation to the contemporary city. With architectural models and drawings, we will overlay divergent views and “gazes” to create multilayered architectural reconstructions of Rome that, like Capriccio paintings, present new versions of la Città Eterna.
