The classic Nolli Map of Rome is an iconic representation of public and private spaces in the city. Yet it has always been, literally, too black and white. The feeling one has as one enters a courtyard or sits on a balcony are neither singularly public nor private. The common spaces on site embrace this reality and celebrate it both formally and in terms of ownership realities.
The “base,” which is owned by the municipality, grants the city the ability to remain an important actor at such a key site, and to retain custody over the public realm. On top of the base, the city will develop several flexible buildings, at varying scales, and subsequently sell them to private entities.
Each building type has an intentionally ambiguous space. These ‘leftover’ spaces are owned by multiple tenants. The spatial inhabitation must be resolved between the parties. This also allows for the development of flexible uses over time.
The base can host an array of programs, allowing spaces for the evolving needs of the community over time. The spaces at the edges against the public space can accommodate more public programs for the community and for visitors.
