Ex-Caserme Square

Arezzo (Italy) 2002

International competition; 2nd prize;

Client: City of Arezzo

The area of the competition is a large abandoned military site within the historic center of the medieval city of Arezzo ( Tuscany). The program required the restoration of existing buildings and their re-use for educational and administrative purposes. Other existing structures will be removed  and replaced by  a 3000 sq. mt auditorium, a mixed use  8000 sq mt commercial and residential complex and a transit terminal. The new square is envisioned as a contemporary version of the 14th century Piazza Grande, the main square of the city.
