The project advocates for a more integrated design concept while allowing visitors to enjoy what amounts to a trippy installation. Here's a video of the installation, which is part of the 2017 Cinque Mostre show and&nbsp;will be viewable in person at the American Academy in Rome until April 4th:&nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/98033706/american-academy-in-rome-announces-the-2014-2015-rome-prize-winners American Academy in Rome Announces the 2014-2015 Rome Prize Winners Alexander Walter 2014-04-14T15:16:00-04:00 >2014-04-14T15:18:27-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/6c/6cfc3b0d9436618e1e2a71f419757baa.jpg" width="530" height="373" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The American Academy in Rome has announced the winners of the 118th annual Rome Prize Competition at a festive ceremony in New York City.</p></em><br /><br /><p>Among many other fields, the two 2014-15 Rome Prize winners in the field of Architecture are:</p><ul><li><strong>Firat Erdim</strong> (Founders Rome Prize)</li><li><strong>Vincent L.
