About Competition

Brief: The aim of the “Tower of Fusion” challenge is to design a site tower as a landmark space that represents the roles of architectural heritage and the newly arriving modern architecture; while acting as an interpretation space for the tourists and the world at large.

To express this fusion in reality there is a need for a space that holds the capacity to include both the magnificence of the heritage structures and also the future buildings together in itself while narrating the rich cultural heritage of Rome.

The design challenge here is not to design just a place but an iconic symbol that depicts the rich and diverse architectural fusion that Rome holds. By providing spaces that help the people to navigate through the city as a whole.

OBJECTIVES

  • Understanding the existing heritage: The past: Study the existing heritage sites and the context that it holds.
  • Understanding the changing modern architecture: The future: Understand the changing trends in architecture and its future in terms of the existing architectural context.
  • Study and understand how to create a fusion:  Study how these changing facets can be combined into one.

Unfuse serves as a unit for Uni in the field of Architecture. It intends to break the fusion of traditional design barriers and methodologies by making it a platform for experimentation and conceptual exchange of ideas in architecture, urbanism, society, culture, and ecology. It is a research initiative dedicated to providing opportunities for designers from all domains to explore ideas that go beyond the boundaries of architectural discipline and enrich our built environment; thereby opening up possibilities for the promotion of architectural thought at a global level.
