MArch Architecture (ARB/RIBA part II)

Michael O’Donnell

A Masterplan for The Romantic City

The project is an exploration into the notion of Romanticism and Romance within a city. Using the pictorial principles of the Picturesque to develop an erotic love map of the urban environment, the project's axes define the composition of the landscape. The narrative of each axis is based on the tragic tale of Romeo + Juliet, Ovid's poetry and immortalised suffering of Chatterton.
