Rome Semester

A sample of sketchbook pages studying the architecture experienced in Rome, in travels throughout Italy, and in London.  

Studio: Jose Cornelio da Silva

This urban intervention project engaged the Tiber River, the Lungotevere, and Via Giulia while maintaining the scale of the medieval neighborhood which surrounded it.  The design proposed a number of large palazzo type buildings along the Via Giulia while smaller typical Roman apartment/ shop (mixed use) buildings create a sunken piazza opening to the Tiber River.
