ARCHITECTURAL PRINCIPLES If we are to devote our lives to making buildings, we have to believe that they are worth it, that they live and speak (of themselves, and the people who made them and thus inhabit them). Buildings must be inhabitable by the bodies, minds and memories of humankind. The spaces we feel, the shapes we see, and the ways we move in buildings should assist the human memory in reconstructing connections through space and time. LIFE & WORKS OF CHARLES MOORE

PIAZZA D’ITALIA (NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA) LIFE & WORKS OF CHARLES MOORE

Slide29:

PIAZZA D’ITALIA (NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA) Moore designed it in conjunction with New Orleans based Perez Architects. Is known as one of Moore’s best-known and influential works. The plaza was commissioned to recognize the contributions of Italian culture in New Orleans. This piazza is set in a mixed area of New Orleans. Located behind the Italian American Cultural Centre. LIFE & WORKS OF CHARLES MOORE

Slide30:

It was to be an unexpected plaza, like the squares in Europe that open up from a narrow road or alley. The Piazza d’Italia fell almost immediately into disuse and disrepair. Partial renovations were done in 2004. It was to be an unexpected plaza, like the squares in Europe that open up from a narrow road or alley.

Slide31:

It is a public fountain in the shape of the Italian peninsula, surrounded by multiple hemi cyclical colonnades, a clock tower, and a campanile (bell tower) and Roman temple - the latter two expressed in abstract, minimalist, space frame fashion. The central fountain, located in the middle of a city block, was accessed in two directions: via a tapering, keyhole-shaped passage extending from Poydras Street, or through an arched opening in the clock tower sited where Commerce Street terminates at Lafayette Street.

Slide34:

The fountain and its surrounding colonnades playfully appropriated classical forms and orders, executing them in modern materials (e.g., stainless steel, neon) or kinetically (e.g., suggesting the acanthus leaves of traditional Corinthian capitals through the use of water jets). The Piazza and its centrepiece, St. Joseph's Foundation, form an ensemble of unqualified pleasure and delight, the perfect expression of the Gloria di vita that is characteristically Italian.

Slide36:

PIAZZA D’ITALIA (NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA) Although the plaza has undergone restoration, the deleterious effects of water and humidity remain evident in the fountain’s broken stones and corroded metal. The original design showed the circular, midblock piazza surrounded by culturally related commerce: a trattoria (an Italian-style eating establishment) , a pizzeria, and imported food and clothing shops. Instead, Piazza D’Italia now stands mostly surrounded by parking lots, adjacent to a 21-story hotel that turns its back on the space, with one small gift shop that remains mostly closed.
