Mall Traiano, Rome

______

Based on a series of geometric distortions and erosions, the project proposes a strange reoccupation of Ancient Rome’s first shopping centre. Bridging the disconnection caused by Mussolini’s Via Dei Fori Imperiali, the Shopping Mall provides a new gateway to the Forum and links into the existing tourist routes of the markets of Trajan whilst framing views of key ancient monuments.
