Promoting social experiences
An essential aspect of the winning proposal is its approach to circularity.

“From the beginning our objective was to repair what is currently a scarred infrastructure in the dense urban morphology of Rome,” he adds. “We saw a great potential in this area because it’s both accessible by train and the metropolitan line, and we could work with the modular buildings on site to transform what’s already there.”
Home to mixed-use residential buildings, office and retail spaces, a student accommodation, an hotel and an energy centre, the new site will be designed to link seamlessly public areas with the private ones, maintaining the flexibility to accomodate a variety of uses and facilitate social experiences and connectivity throughout the neighbourhood.
