Italian studio Robocoop has created a brief facade to mix into its historic environment and conceal ongoing development on a palace courtyard restoration in Rome.

Robocoop designed a facade of arches, columns and sculpture and printed it onto a PVC plastic banner, stretching it throughout scaffolding measuring ten metres tall and 11 metres broad.

It was created for the Particular Superintendency of Archaeology, High quality Arts and Panorama of Rome, which commissioned Robocoop to create art work to cover the development website brought on by the restoration of courtyard facades at Palazzo Mattei di Giove.

Studio founders Lorenzo Zandri and Luca Pozzati described the venture, named BassoRilievo, as “a deliberate intention to assemble an illusionary infill facade”.

Initially designed by Italian architect Carlo Maderno in 1598, the palace courtyard was constructed as an open-air lapidarium to show historic Roman reliefs and sculptures.

Robocoop’s momentary facade took parts of the palace partitions, in addition to cues from the Santa Susanna church in Rome and up to date architects, together with Carlo Scarpa, Luigi Moretti, and Amin Taha, to create a fragmented but acquainted look.

“A few of the parts of this fictional facade are homages to those architects, reinterpreting the thought of collage utilizing a few of these archetypal kinds from iconic tasks,” Zandri and Pozzati informed Dezeen.

Zandri and Pozzati described the facade as an illusionary set up made with architectural precision, aiming to create a printed sheet of plastic that seems like strong structure.

“Our latest venture at Palazzo Mattei di Giove blends set up artwork with ephemeral structure,” they mentioned.

“We use detailed measurements and proportional design, creating the phantasm of a tangible construction with giant prints on plastic,” Zandri and Pozzati continued.

“This challenges perceptions, inviting contemplation and connection between the art work and the encircling context.”

Each with backgrounds in structure, Zandri and Pozzati based Robocoop in 2012 as an experimental design studio primarily working in city artwork. The duo relies between Rome and London.

Elsewhere in Rome, Milan-based designer Patricia Urquiola transformed a palazzo right into a lodge and spa, and structure studio Buero Wagner put in an adaptable black timber pavilion within the grounds of Villa Massimo.
