Yale Professor and Students Create Major Project for Architecture Biennale

Yale Professor and Students Create Major Project for Architecture Biennale | Archaeology News | Scoop.it

This year's Venice Architecture Biennale includes a major project developed by architect and Yale School of Architecture Professor Peter Eisenman. Titled: The Piranesi Variations, this multipart endeavor focuses on Giovanni Battista Piranesi's 1762 Campo Marzio dell'antica Roma, a folio of six etchings that depict his fantastical vision of what ancient Rome might have looked like, derived from years of archaeological and architectural research.

 

Piranesi's images—precise, specific, yet impossible—have been a source of speculation, inspiration, research, and contention for architects, urban designers, and scholars since their publication 250 years ago.

 

But why not do it in GOLD!
