Architectural and archeological studies show that the center of Rome’s Pantheon floor has a curvature. The intentionality of it is still under discussion and remains uncertain, nevertheless it is a consensus that this curvature, replicating Ancient Greek curved columns, was a premeditated creative act aiming a sense of harmony in a heterogeneous space.
Representing the Pantheon’s pavement was our first encounter with the architectural journey we set ourselves into. We worked for two weeks in pairs, each one of us was given a section from a squared plan of the pavement.
Through drawing and modeling we built a wooden structure of our section “F3”, which we assembled with all of the other sections recreating a model of the curvature.
Our wooden structure later became an instrument, establishing a dialogue between the Pantheon as a building and our drawing of the model using Monge’s descriptive geometry.
