Idroscalo: This Is Not Rome As We Know It

The Roma studio recently completed their Chronographic Design Investigation by interrogating The Edge, The Village, The Strata, and The House of the quite forgotten and much neglected informal settlement of Idroscalo.  This truly unique settlement situated just outside of Rome and near Ostia Antica, introduced students to an unlikely appreciation of the edge conditions and modern day Italian vernacular architecture. Amidst the fresh sea air lies a juxtaposition of conditions, the old and the new, the broken walls and the barriers, and the numerous dogs jumping on rooftops. This summer studio exploration truly sought to define chronophilia in Italian living.

Ciao for now!
