    URBAN LOUNGE ROME, ITALY - 2007
    DESIGN TEAM: 2A+P architettura (Gianfranco Bombaci, Domenico Cannistraci, Pietro Chiodi, Matteo Costanzo, Valerio Franzone) • PHOTOGRAPHS: Dina Dancu


    This installation represented an Italian garden, a natural landscape that had overrun the artificial environment of Capranica Square in the very centre of Rome. It was an urban lounge designed to welcome visitors during the eternal city’s last nuit blanche event, which drew thousands of participants. The artificial garden acted as a natural lounge that allowed people to rest on a grassy couch. Due to the very temporary existence of the installation, the project was conceived to permit the recycling of almost all of the materials of which it was made.
