Strathclyde Architecture students shortlisted in Italian architecture comp
November 11 2015
Seeing off 100s of entrants, including professional competition, Marco Zaccaria and Veronika Desova won through with their plans for a Museum of Cinema outside Rome’s Colosseum.
Rome - Architecture and Cinema was organised by Italian architectural promoter START with a view to honouring the city’s history as a cinematic backdrop, charting the evolving portrayal of the city on film through the ages.
Studio design tutor David MacRitchie said: “This is an amazing achievement for students in year two. They have gained recognition in an international competition against practising architects from around the world whilst continuing their full time academic study”.
Their approach focusses on the use of film by projecting scenes directly onto semi-transparent fabric partitions, enabling visitors to gradually navigate inwards away from the noise and chaos of the city outside.
At its heart a cloud-like central space is envisaged, protected from the elements by a skin of semi-transparent plaster panels.
