Description Change this

Protective housing for the remains of the foundations of three Roman Buildings (which one of those only a corner is visible). This protective casing for the archaeological finds was conceived as a kind of abstract reconstruction of the Roman volumes: a lightweight framework for walls made of timer lamella which admit light and air exactly follows the Roman outer walls, thus producing a package-like effect which give a visible form to location of the Roman buildings in today's city landscape.
