Roma 2010. Vertical spa facing the colosseum

concorso internazionale di idee

iscrizioni entro 10.08.10 | consegna entro 1.09.10

Arquitectum and the Istituto Nazionale di Architettura want to bring a new element to the city's debate and enigma: a hundred meter high tower, next to the Coliseum, which would present itself as an "important" element, but not necessarily monumental, which would expose Rome's complexity by being a "vertical" Rome, which would assemble the facts and the enigmas lived and surviving in the Eternal City.

The challenge of this competition is, of course, to discover this "belonging" to Rome, the hidden beauty and exposed all over the city as a mendicant spirit, wandering lost, waiting for the architect willing and able to capture it. Therefore the suggested tower will serve as an element demonstrative of this spirit, projecting it in the present time and the uncertain future of a city which has survived every kind of buildings and can always take in a new one: refreshing, renewing and exposing of the constant rebirth of its vital structure.

Francesco Orofino | Massimo Locci | Manuela Raitano | Guendalina Salimei | Luca Lamini
