The Piranesi Variations    Critic: Peter Eisenman   The course attempts use analysis as a means of determining how the project embedded within Piranesi’s Campo Marzio can affect practice today. Through a series of readings, seminars, and analytic drawings and models, the course sought to develop a discourse around the distinction between ‘autonomy’ and ‘absolute’ as defined by Pier Vittorio Aureli, and apply it to an understanding of Piranesi’s Campo Marzio as a way of moving project into practice. The results of the seminar were presented at the Venice Biennale as part of the exhibition: 'Piranesi Variations,' which included the work of Eisenman Architects, DOGMA and Jefferey Kipnis/Ohios State University.

The Piranesi Variations

Critic: Peter Eisenman

The course attempts use analysis as a means of determining how the project embedded within Piranesi’s Campo Marzio can affect practice today. Through a series of readings, seminars, and analytic drawings and models, the course sought to develop a discourse around the distinction between ‘autonomy’ and ‘absolute’ as defined by Pier Vittorio Aureli, and apply it to an understanding of Piranesi’s Campo Marzio as a way of moving project into practice.
