A Library for Theatre in Rome


Design of a Library for Theatre in Rome, near Via Giulia, creating an outdoors stage space, restaurants spaces and terraced roof gardens engaging workspaces with visible links into the piazza. The design explores themes including the imagination in architecture of Piranesi and Soviet Paper Architects, reality and illusion, deconstructing and reconstructing, the theatre of the everyday, watching and being watched in urban context, and an architectural expression to the early 20th Century avant-garde theatre of Brecht and Pirandello.
