The project is made up of a series of interventions along the roadway's 5-kilometer (3-mile) length, including tunnel portals, retaining walls, acoustic barrier walls, and ventilation chimneys. For reference, the latter's Y-shaped above-ground portion pictured here is only about one-fifth of the chimney's height as it reaches from tunnel to sky. Visit the Piranesi Awards website for more information on the Ring Road project as well as the honorable mentions and student awards.
