As part of “Communicating Architecture”, a cycle of web talks organized by THE PLAN and dedicated to the protagonists of THE PLAN Editions monographs, a meeting will be held on March 3, focusing on two design experiences in the capital, their relationship with the context and complexities related to the pandemic period: Maximo Shopping Center by 3C + t Capolei Cavalli and Via Colombo 80 by De Sanctis Costruzioni.
Maximo Shopping answers many questions about the role of commercial architectures. Through a story in images and texts, this architecture attentive to the themes of sustainability and sociality is proposed not only as a new place in the city, but as a “place” where to meet.
With Via Colombo 80, a symbolic building becomes a new point of reference in the Roman business community. A careful total renovation, described through the construction phases and the voices of the various protagonists, was successfully completed by De Sanctis Costruzioni, based on a project by PCMR.
In the web talk “Designing and building in Rome”, between 16:30 and 18:30 Fabrizio Capolei and Francesca De Sanctis will talk about the two projects, to which two monographs have been dedicated.
