Planting a wood on the MAXXI piazza. Creating a green oasis offering a refuge for the birds in the area, choosing species of plants and trees growing in the Monte Mario Natural Reserve and at Villa Ada, the two great green lungs that embrace the Flaminio quarter.
This is Green Gallery by STUDIOD3R with Marcello Fantuz, the ecological, eco-sustainable project favouring biodiversity and contrasting global warming that has won YAP Rome at MAXXI, organized by MAXXI in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art – New York, as part of the Young Architects Program dedicated to the support and promotion of young architectural research, now in its seventh Italian edition.
The project, which will be installed on the MAXXI piazza from 13 June to 21 October 2018, was selected by an international jury composed of Hou Hanru, Artistic Director, MAXXI, Margherita Guccione, Director, MAXXI Architettura, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, Director, MAXXI Arte, Pippo Ciorra, Senior Curator, MAXXI Architettura, Sean Anderson, Associate Curator of Architecture and Desig, MoMA, Carmen Andriani, lecturer, Università degli studi di Genova, Paola Nicolin, Deputy Editor, Domus, Jeanette Plaut, Director, Constructo - Chile, Kim Hyoungmi, Curator of Architecture, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art – South Korea, for MMCA.
Green Gallery was chosen for its “capacity for dialogue for the strongly volumetric, concrete and dynamic architecture of MAXXI, which it contrasts with a structure based on lightness, geometric minimalism and the utmost presence of nature".
Among the other candidates were the Summary studio Summary (Samuel de Brito Gonçalves, Inês Vieira Rodrigues, João Pedro Meira, Luca Sabbadini, Giacomo Tacchi, Andrea Ferro, Porto – Portugal), AM3 studio (Marco Alesi, Cristina Cali', Alberto Cusumano, Palermo – Italy), Tomé Capa + LIMIT STUDIO (Ricardo Acosta, Ivo Barbosa, Lisbon - Portugal) and KolendićKrmek (Marja Mia Kolendić and Anita Krmek, Zagabria – Croatia).

YAP Young Architects Program offers an emerging designer or architectural practice the opportunity to create a temporary installation on the MAXXI piazza that will host the museum’s summer activities and offer the public shade, water and spaces in which to relax.
A space that testifies to architectural research and innovation, attentive to the issues of sustainability, recycling and reuse and which emphasises the public nature of the museum piazza.
