Unique to Rome is its rich history as the center of the Roman Empire and as the home to the Catholic Church. Also unique to Rome is its rich culture and cuisine. A sunny afternoon stroll through Campo de Fiori will reveal Romans out and about, having an espresso, sharing a meal, or enjoying a glass of wine. The Roman people take great pride in how they present themselves to the world, dressing exceptionally even if it is just to go out for a quick walk. Part of what makes Rome so special, is the social interactions and lifestyles that the city itself physically encourages.

This study will build on my fall research studio in which I proposed a series of residential colleges here at The University of Virginia. My proposal densified the Carrs Hill area of campus aiming to create new residential colleges centered around urban spaces. These urban spaces and the paths between them mimic the streets and piazzas of Rome. The goal was to create a more desirable student life here on campus and promote healthy lifestyles and social interaction currently lacking in many of the residential colleges at UVA.

Students traveling to grounds from Hereford College must ride on a bus or face a time consuming and dangerous walk to central grounds. Critical to this study will be the study of scale, proportion, adjacencies, usage and time how these spaces change throughout the course of the day.

I will then document what makes these spaces so special from an experiential perspective, and then from an analytical architectural perspective. By examining the Nolli Map one can start to understand the history of the city, the proximity of spaces to one another, how people move throughout the city, the relation of indoor public spaces typically churches to outdoor public spaces and many other significant urban conditions.

Although the Nolli Map successfully documents and abstracts this information, there is one condition that it cannot and does not document. In this sense, the Nolli Map lays out a blueprint for the city, but does not provide the viewer any information as to the qualities of these spaces or how they are used. This study will analyze the z-axis of the Nolli Map. A series of both analytical and experiential drawings will be used to document these conditions. The experiential drawings will capture the life of these spaces.

The analytical drawings will provide a metric to the height, width and depth of some of these spaces. The analytical drawings will directly represent the areas studied in the experiential drawings.

The drawings will help us to understand both the experiential qualities of a space, and then have the blueprint that explains how this space was created. From there we can apply the lessons learned from this study to design problems of our own. What is a good width for this passageway? Is this too tall or imposing for this area? Is this public space to large?

Where will people congregate in a space of this size? Which way will people walk through this space? These are the kinds of questions that I will be able to answer with more confidence after conducting this study. To conduct this study, I will focus on four areas of interest. I will first record the use of the spaces by day and by night, how people interact with the space, how people interact with each other within the space, points of interest within each space and then photograph typical social interactions happening within the space.

I will then pick areas in which to conduct the experiential drawings and create a series of vignettes. After these have been completed, I will create one large analytical sketch for each area.

This drawing will demonstrate in a measured manner, the spatial logic of the spaces captured in the vignettes. There are many restaurants, cafes, bakeries and bars around the perimeter of this piazza.

Campo De Fiori functions as a market and meeting place during the day and transforms into a popular nightlife destination once the sun goes down. Piazza Navonna boasts a handful of restaurants, bakeries and cafes around its perimeter as well as some famous fountains, an obelisk and the church of St.

It is a popular spot to see street performers, artists, citizens and tourists alike. Unique to Piazza Navonna is its elongated shape which mimics the ancient circus which it is built atop. It is also one of the most highly regarded public spaces in the city blossoming with street artists, performers and musicians.

It is bustling during the day with citizens and groups of tourists. At night the site is popular among romantics in the city and also boasts a large number of restaurants and cafes around its perimeter. It functions very differently than the other areas of interest I have noted as it acts similar to a theater or stage set.

It is popular by both day and night and is a popular spot to catch a nice view of the city from above. Nicholas Darin
