The Thermal Baths of Curinga are the remains of an ancient complex that once stood along the coastline of the beautiful area of Calabria in southern Italy. This archaeological site, which was constructed during the Imperial Era, serves as evidence of the sophisticated engineering, richness, and socio-cultural importance of the ancient bathing complexes, providing us with a window into the intriguing world of the ancient Romans.

We invite the participants to help the Municipality of Curinga conserve and museumize the Thermae by merely designing a roof, a fence, or a volume around it in order to reopen this archaeological monument to visitors.

Is it feasible to breathe life back into these ancient Roman hot baths? The architects, engineers, and students who will take part in this competition will have the last say on the solution to this problem.
