MUSEO FORMA URBIS

The proposal for the Museum housing both the marble Forma Urbis Romae and the Model of Rome is located on the Velia Hill, parallel to current Via Dei Fori Imperiali. This design project was the 2nd part of the 6 week condensed Rome Abroad Studio.

The main entrance into the museum is through the colonnade, which will lead you to the viewing of the marble model on the wall to the left. Once in the museum space, the physical model can be viewed at two different levels: ground and mezzanine. To enhance the overall experience, adjacent galleries and a media room allow visitors to learn more about the history of the city and better understand the model. On the hill level, a cafe and belvedere are located to offer views of the Colosseum, the Imperial Forums, and the Roman skyline. FLOORPLANS SECTIONS
