20: Seven Partly Underground Rooms…

Mary-Ann Ray

Seven Partly Underground Rooms and Buildings for Water, Ice, and Midgets investigates unusual spaces in Italy, ranging from a honeycombed and mazelike series of rooms and stairs for midgets, to the dining chambers of a Pompeiian estate, to a half-buried sphere that serves as a place for ice storage. Ray reveals these quixotic spaces through constructed drawings, collaged photographs, and insightful text.
