Auditorium of Hadrian ^
Competition entry for the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage in Rome, as part of the program of interventions aimed at the restoration, enhancement and use of the monumental complex of the Auditorium of the Emperor Hadrian in Rome. The three monumental halls built by emperor Hadrian in 123 AD were discovered as part of an excavation to build an underground railway line. The proposal seeks to build a crystalline covering over the halls with walkways where you can still hear the poetry, speeches, and philosophy tracts as you walk in the hustle and bustle of modern day Piazza Madonna di Loreto in Rome.
