Herculaneum Restoration School
International Concept competition - 1st prize
The main idea behind the competition proposal is to open the currently closed piazza over the archeological excavations for the visitors. The future school of restoration is prevised to be semi-underground structure inside the wall of the existing volcanic rock hill. One future real building with approximate height of 10m erected on this site will complete the wall of buildings along the street and will make the excavations absolutely invisible and any possible view towards them impossible. That is why the new building is invisible and the square belongs again to the people.
