Roma XX - Daytime Views

a celebration of 20 years of the Rome programme

June 2000

BCE Place: Heritage Square and Galleria
Toronto, Ontario


Roma XX was a celebration of the Rome Programme of the School of Architecture of the University of Waterloo. Since 1979 the fourth year class has been residing and studying in the Roman environs.

The opening of this significant exhibition was held in the Galleria at BCE Place on June 12, 2000. A temporary structure was erected upon which to hang a retrospective collection of student projects, as well as projects created by Prix de Rome winners. Large fabric banners were suspended from the ribs of the steel structure along the length of the space.
