Museum of the Tiber

4th Year Studio

Fall 2018

Rome

This museum of the Tiber is sited at the historic location of il Porto di Ripetta, a historically-important Roman port that connected the city to the river.  This museum is designed to re-invigorate this connection to the river by bridging the Lungotevere and allowing access and views to a relatively underdisturbed riverfront.  The design takes inspiration from the surrounding buildings, and maximizes space in a constrained site.
