Auditorium Parco della Musica, Rome

Renzo Piano designed the Parco della Musica on the site of the 1960 Olympics in Rome, Italy. It includes three buildings which are called by Piano "music boxes": Sala Santa Cecilia, Sala Sinopoli, and Sala Petrassi. It opened in December 2002 and reportedly receives a million visitors each year.

During construction, Piano designed a museum to accomodate a villa and an oil press from the 6th century B.C. that were uncovered. The lead-layered shells over the buildings give an appearance of three large beetles surrounding a central plaza and open-air theater.

The insect-like wood interior is nothing less than stunning. The red wood hangs like the interior of an ancient tent. As a whole, this complex is a barren edifice waiting to be illuminated by an artistic performance. The modern approach respects the historic context and indicates something great that once occurred there- or has yet to happen.
