Our final review took place on Monday, December 6th and lasted the entire day with three shifts of reviews. There were 30 student projects that ranged from a skating park to an underground sauna to various museums. Unlike precedent semesters, our project was self-appointed. Since the very beginning, we chose the site we were interested in and wanted to work with. Later on we chose the project we wanted to project onto this site. All this made for a very interesting final review due to the great variety of presentations.
Our jury consisted of a combination of Italian and American critics. In fact throughout the entire semester, we had always been receiving direct influences from each side as one of our studio professors, Luca Galofaro, was Roman, and the two others, Aleksandr Mergold and Vincent Mulcahy, were Cornell (aka: mothership) exports. In addition to our proffessors, Carmello Baglio, Andrea Leonardi, Marissa Tyrone, Joshua Stein, Luca Montuori and both members of the firm Agency were invited critics.
