Centocelli Park Competition, Rome

A new park for the suburbs of Rome based on a shifting geometry of rotated forms which create an artificial hill and depressions around excavated sites of ancient ruins. The terraces formed are reminiscent of the ancient wine growing terraces of the Mediterranean, creating moving and static spaces within the landscape. Trees were planted in groves to give the idea of shelter. Trees and lights were laid out to form pathways and links to the surrounding cityscape, routes that used to cross the site are reinstated, at least notionally, to link to the older history of the location.
