Context

The city of Rome has launched an international design competition to transform the district of Flaminio, known for its industrial environment, neighboring the Museo Nazionale Delle Arti MAXXI designed by Zaha Hadid.

Challenge

To modernize the Romane style area and welcome it to the 21st century.

Concept

The idea is to connect the different projects of the neighborhood to the Tiber and the MAXXI.
The basis of our thoughts for this project is innovation.  The different areas articulate around a new public place which becomes the central exchange area between users.  The buildings can adapt to society’s ever-growing needs.
Collective spaces, such as terraces and parkings, promote exchange and highlight this project.
