Housing on the Piazza alla Signoria

Fall 2011

Completed together with the project on the Arsenale in Venice, the Piazza is read as a four-square  – four blocks that have been successively excavated and infilled over the millennia to produce the current piazza.  The corner to the north of the Signoria is filled in, with a single bar of housing units that is elevated to maintain the open space of the piazza while also mirroring the iconic Uffizi gallery to the south.

Completed with Zachary Heaps as an Advanced Studio under Peter Eisenman while at Yale University.
