The University of Miami School of Architecture’s Rome Program director and faculty member Carmen Guerrero and her students were invited to display a collection of their models and drawings in an exhibit in the new MAXXI museum in Rome.
University of Miami architecture graduate and Sunny Isles resident Juliana Urrego displayed her models in the exhibit.
The work is being displayed in one of five inaugural exhibits titled “Luigi Moretti Architetto from Rationalism to the Informal.” This collection has played a valuable role in the preservation of the work of the Italian architect, and the exhibit opening is a significant curatorial event for researchers of modern architecture in Europe.
Professor Guerrero has led her students in the research of Moretti for more than three years and has exhibited their work in Rome, Switzerland and Miami. The MAXXI museum, one of the few contemporary projects in the city of Rome, is designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid.
The Rome program began in 1991. The program brings together a select group of upper level students and faculty members for an intensive experience in design, theory, and history of architecture.
