Reuse the Thermae — Curinga
Municipality of Curinga
About the Competition
Architecture competition on the protection of the Roman Thermal Bath of Curinga.
Along the coastline of the enchanting region of Calabria, in southern Italy, there are the ruins of an ancient complex: the Thermal Baths of Curinga. Built during the Imperial Era, this archaeological site stands as proof of the advanced engineering, opulence, and socio-cultural significance of the ancient bathing complexes, offering us a glimpse into the fascinating world of the ancient Romans.
Together with the Municipality of Curinga, we ask the participants to protect and musealize the Thermae, simply designing around it a roof, a fence, or a volume, to make this archaeological site open to visitors again.
Is it possible to bring life back inside these thermal baths from Roman times? The answer to this question is in the hands of the architects, the engineers, and the students who will participate in this competition.
