now Rome: Currents and Convergences is the theme of the 2022 Architecture in Rome program. In exploring the theme of contemporaneity in Rome, the program will focus on untimely meditations where the classic is embedded in place and revealed in a tectonic logic of a dynamic balance of forces. One source of this poetic understanding can be traced to the modern Nordic Classicism of architects such as Alvar Aalto, Gunnar Asplund, Peter Celsing and Sigurd Lewerentz, all of whom traveled to Italy and Rome and continued to cultivate the classic as a vortex of the imagination, a living tradition rooted in building and tectonics. We will amplify this connection with a trip to Stockholm as well as visits to Rome by contemporary Scandinavian architects, in order to explore what of the classic is lost and what can be found and is still current.
