How is it that a unintentional tilt in a tower could evoke such international mass appeal? Perhaps because – albeit still within the confines of physical laws – it pokes holes in many peoples’ perception of physics! It challenged our understandings of how architecture could be constructed, and with that Roman architectural designer Paolo Venturella will surely ride steadily on that wave of thought.
“We propose a new revolutionary design to allow the city of Rome to find again its own old splendor, leading it to a new pioneering city as it was in the passed century. Rome was not built in a day, let’s make it born again!” – Paolo Venturella
“In order to avoid an uncontrolled invasion of photovoltaic panels all over the city, the new typology perfectly combines the need of the moment.” – Paolo Venturella
Unlike the Tower of Pisa, the architectural designs by Paolo Venturella are attempting to create an environmental impact in how we look at and construct cities filled with skyscrapers towering over the mass populace. What Venturella proposes is a combination of both awe-inspiring design, to which historical structures like the Tower of Pisa evoked, and climate-saving technological innovation.
Will Venturella’s vision of futuristic cities successfully materialize? For the sake of humanity and their place on a fragile planet, I surely hope so!
