A museum for Pompei
Pompei - selected
The design won the web prize in the startfortalent contest, and was selected as one of the top ten for the young Italian architect 2015 (presstletter.com) during the Architects meet in Fuoribiennale 2015. The museum is a structure embedded in the context and with the history of Pompeii. The city created on the intersection of important roads and close to the sea, became an obligatory from north to south. The idea is based on two aspects: the study of the geometric shapes of the blocks of silex, the paving of the Roman road, and the analysis of the archeological area of urban texture. The other element is the layout of the road network that distinguishes the archaelogical area of urban design, divided into sectors by the decumano higher, the lower decumano, the cardo and Mercurio’s street.
