Today we took a way from Piazza della Chiesa Nuova to Gil by Moretti in Trastevere, I did some interesting observations and quick sketches along the way.

Key Word: Urban Form Study, Quick sketch

Urban Form Study

The urban form of Rome varies from street to street, it is a good chance to observe the different urban form and there effect

I found that there are three different urban forms on my way, as shown in the drawing, each form gives varies feeling based on the arrangement of the building massing, I did quick sketch about the plan and the perspective to analyze the nature of the space.

Quick sketch

This is a diagram of a Baroque facade on our way, I captured the different typology of horizontal layers, they work together as being “Baroque”

Quick sketch along the way

Analysis of a piazza both as space and the rhythm of the main facade

The first joint is the Martitime Theatre as discussed before, it connects the courtyard of the library and the hall of the philosophers. The courtyard of the library and the hall of the philosophers have two different axial orientation, being a circular geometry itself, Martitime Theatre acting as a joint to adjust the two different circulation and orientations in a smart way. It is a good example of using the nature of geometry as architecture solution.

The second joint deals with the same problem as the first one, but with a different typology, the joint itself is a set of turning space.

The third joint behaviors different with the previous two, it is a directly joint without any buffering area
