Type / Competition by invitation – FINALIST
Status / Completed

Springing MAXXI is a project of a fountain in Rome that welcomes life into it and through its different water settings encourages different uses of the space around it. A simple and absolute geometry: a suspended ring overlaps the dynamic forms of the museum and it amplifies its character and performance.
The vital element of water, the comfortable seats and the spectacular lights will convert the open space in front of the MAXXI into a real town square in which citizens, every time, will redefine its uses and redraw its shape.
