RE-USE THE ROMAN RUIN

reuseitaly.com

INTRODUCTION

The second edition of the cultural project Re-use Italy promotes an international architecture competition on the reuse of Piscina Mirabilis, a Roman reservoir located in the countryside of Naples. The contest is powered by a partnership with ArchDaily, KooZA/rch, 120g, EX32, and with the official support of CINEMA 4D - Maxon, the Parco Archeologico dei Campi Flegrei, the Min-icipality of Bacoli (Naples) and the FAI.


Piscina Mirabilis is a Roman reservoir built by Emperor Augustus in the 1st century AD, in order to feed with drinking water the headquar-ter of his western Mediterranean war fleet. It was dug out a tuff hill, and it is based on a regular grid of pillars and arcs, with vaulted ceilings.


The competition, open to architects, engineers and students, asks the participants to transform the ruin into a Contemporary Art Museum.
