So what did you really think about MAXXI?
During their excursion to Rome MA A+U visited Zaha Hadid's MAXXI. Here's what they thought about it.
Jonas thought it was a brave intervention that represented a new era for Rome.
Angela liked the use of the light
Supriya found that there was a lot of unutilised space
Luke thought it was a generic place that could be anywhere in the world
Jack felt the experience was dominated by the personality of the architect
Craig detected a surprising discontinuity of route which detracted from the experience of the building
Bill said it was untraditional - but didn't like it
Kathryn thought the building had a confusing layout but that is not necessarily a bad thing
Meliz liked the exterior but couldn't find her way round
Carrie thought the big window was an anti- climax
Chen thought that the building had tremendous meaning for the future of Rome
Preeya found the building disorienting
Natalie thought the artworks were overpowered by the building
Angad felt it was an adorable experience of unconventional spaces
Christina thought it was self-centred and out of context
Ketki observed that the look of the structure was out of context with what Rome is all about
