–EDITORIAL PICK of Re-Nature Rome Competition


The cities bus system is one of the major ways for people to travel round the city of Rome, but for the past 5 years a strange phenomenon where the buses of the city have suddenly caught fire due to the suspected age of the bus. This happens The locals have named this Phenomenon “Flambus”. Our project looks to use the inherent obsolescence of these old petrol buses to create living art for the city. So instead of clearing the bus away when one of these incidents occur, we will encourage nature to take over the skeletal remains of the bus and for it to take advantage of the small amount of damage caused by the fire to the streets. It highlights that although fire can cause damage to human structures and city infrastructure, it can also lead to the growth and nourishment of nature allowing small pockets of it to inhabit the heavily urbanised city to the benefit to the city.
