Served and Servant/ All Roads Lead to Rome

______

A project about geometry, retrofit and rich and poor. In this practical- polemical scenario, a new wave of Catholic refugees temporarily housed in the Colosseum, develop an integrated housing project for both rich and poor. Geometrical figures are used to tuck super- high density servant accommodation and circulation into the walls, cores and stairwells of the thick walls of the wealthy housing. The oval form wraps a new private garden, while a golden ‘halo’ public shopping promenade overhangs the Colosseum itself.
