永恆之城(The Eternal City)羅馬,經過2500年來的建設使整座城市充滿歷史與生活的痕跡,Forum、Basilica、競技場等極為公共的建築物,佔據地表極大的面積,教堂高聳且顯眼,定義了城市天際線的高度,而在水平線之下,則存在一個完全相反的世界,在當時,地底(underground)一直被認為是城市中的負空間,西元300年前基督徒的秘密墓穴,或者是為了排洪、排污而建立的下水道系統,似乎都像是玫瑰下的秘密(under the rose),為人所不齒。

 

現代的羅馬,一切地面上的建設都由羅馬歷史中心所制定的保護規劃和設計規範所約束,而地底是唯一的機會,於是檯面上與檯面下開始翻轉,我們將原本城市中容納市民及遊客生活和日常活動的場所翻轉至地下並重新定義空間性質。

 

利用連續的序列及多層次的空間關係創造地底下的多樣性,program由公共到私密,最後進入浴場─這個最為私密卻又公共的program裡,使一切社交在此發生,並且嘗試實驗水泥與不同纖維使水泥擁有多變的硬度及質感,同時更可以是透光(透明)及紀錄日光的特殊性質,使空間之間的牆不只是牆面,而是空間之中的重要介面以及不同空間之間的連結,早期因為舊建築的地基無法剷平,而向上疊建,使地平線隨著時間不斷被抬升,所以常會挖掘到歷史遺跡,也使人在往下探索的過程中充滿驚喜,挖掘玫瑰下的秘密。

The architecture of Rome, the Eternal City has been purposefully designed to bring meaning to the infrastructure of the city. Built over 2500 years, the chapel has served as a division between the ethereal space and the mortal space. Common buildings are designed to yield to the chapel in height. The city’s underground space is considered negative space that is home to Catacombs of San Callisto, sewer systems, and flood water. This place is known as “the secret under the rose” to represent unspoken subjects of darkness in this city.

By following the historical design rules and conservation plans, present buildings are confined to a certain height. The only option is to build underground. The citizens and tourists begin to shift their daily activities into the “the secret under the rose” space. The historical structures remain intact, but the development of space is now being redefined underground.

 

Rome, the Eternal City, has been purposefully designed to bring meaning to the infrastructure of the city. Built over 2500 years, public buildings occupied most area on the earth. The cathedral is conspicuous and towering, has served as a division between the ethereal space and the mortal space. Common buildings are designed to yield to the cathedral in height. On the contrary, the underground space of city is considered negative space that is home to Catacombs of San Callisto, sewer systems, and flood water. These places are known as “the secret under the rose” to represent unspoken subjects of darkness in this city.

 

Nowadays, all of constructions in the historic center of Rome are confined to building by following the design rules and conservation plans. The only option is to build underground. We begin to shift the daily activities of citizens and tourists into underground. The historical context remains intact, but the development of space is now being redefined underground.
