The different settlements that are built on top of each other makes Orbetello physically and culturally stratified.
The wall is an architectural spine that houses public exhibition spaces and more private facilities for archaeologists.
The paths are defined by three key moments beginning with the reconstruction exhibition, then the preservation facility, and finally the convention center. The two distinct paths interact and overlap in these spaces.
The subtractive massing strategy consists of carving voids out of the solid ground.
The experience of visitors is curated through lighting, views, compression, and decompression.
