The exhibition/reception celebrates the 40th Waterloo Architecture Rome Class and displays the work done this term to the members of the class and guests, in particular students from Italian and American Universities. The Studio this year returned to the central archaeological area exploring the potential to ‘open’ a neglected and apparently forgotten part of this immense green space. The site, on the west side of the Caelian Hill (Celio) overlooks the Colosseum and sits opposite the Palatine. The program called for a hybrid of permanent exhibition space, orientation, and facilities for cultural production, in a park and connected to the public transit system. In ‘opening’ Caelian we sought to offer benefits to both the local and visitor populations, to make a contemporary institution part of the archaeological and contemporary cultural and urban landscape.
