Nuovo Esposizione Universale Roma

______

The veiling of the Fascist shell of the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana and the incorporation of housing for women into its masculine frame enables the EUR to develop from a forgotten suburb into a Utopia. It reinvents Le Corbusier’s Unité for the sole use of women, reversing the usual layout by pushing all private activities such as bathing to the communal outer edges, veiling the Palazzo in the women of Rome.
