Roman structures, flexible and traditional urban structures, arena typologies and structures, showing and using historical legacy, Scarpa poetry, practicing quick tasks verona was the port of call when starting on our epic 3 weeks in italy. generally, a somewhat small northern italian city -still had its gems to show. we experienced the castelvecchio and banco popolare pieces by carlo scarpa, the verona arena and the classical roman heritage in the city with the piazza erbe and its cardo and decumanus crossing here. all the time we sketched and photographed like crazy, and these are the keywords of what we experienced and learnt: verona
  4. 4. vicenza was the playground of legendary architect and author andrea palladio. it is evident that this small city has many testaments to the tradition that we call palladianism and the renaissance of roman principles on architecture used on private residences. we experienced how palladio connected 3 different houses with a central courtyard and a throughgoing colonnade. but the architecture of palladio was also studied at the palazzo chiericati, the excellent basilica palladiana, the next-door loggia, some other villas in other contexts and the major teatro olimpico (fulfilled by scamozzi). Roman principles in Palladio architecture, the origin of indoor theatre, structural economy, play-of-light, old-and-new in a Renaissance setting vicenza

  7. 7. capri-blue, pathways and the landscape, lizards, car-free society, house as a interpretation of landscape, italian vernacular architecture at the island of capri, we all got a sunburn. and we also walked quite a lot on the nice pathways on the eastern side of the island, connecting the very beautiful villa malaparte and the rests of an old roman villa. we did several sketches and quick tasks on the nature of the path construction and the villa malaparte. capri
  8. 8. advanced urbanism, frescoes, daylight, atriums, commercial zones within urban villas, urban agriculture in the legendary and very important destination pompeii we experienced how urbanism have a very long history in the mediterrean region. the urban residences did not only have commercial features towards the street, but also contained zones for agriculture and indivdual relaxing. pompeii
  9. 9. arab-european style mix, Roman structures, urban planning, Ballaro and Vucciria markets, theatre culture, WW2destructions after 2 weeks and some days we arrived in palermo, our final destination. we had acquired lots of tools and knowledge throughout the other destinations and now we were about to get to know a new city and also decide on 2 sites for doing a project on. palermo
  10. 10. urban traditions and conventions, icons of architecture, relaxing, proportions and elegance i decided to take a personal detour to rome. it is nicknamed the eternal city and probably has the status of a pilgrim destination among architects. i wanted to focus on the urbanism canons in rome, so i went to campidoglio, spanish steps and st peters square - but also piazza navona and campo fiore. rome
