ARC 512b: ADVANCED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STUDIO
with Greg Lynn and Brennan Buck (Spring 2009)

"E'l naufragar m'e dolce in questo mare" (Rome, Italy)

This project aims to 'complete' Bernini's design for the Piazza San Pietro by using the extant site geometry to render the Piazza permanently incomplete... Using lofted geometry and ruled surfaces to create irresolute form, the project attempts to engage the 'contemporary' life of the city (i.e., traffic and tourism) while disrupting the geometric clarity of the Piazza and the Via della Conciliazione.
