Office Tower in Brescia
The tower’s structure is visible from the distance.
And that’s the look that it wants to emphasize.
The structure as an integral part of the architecture, a very fundamental part that manages to be simultaneously a static functional element and even an architectural element delineating the building true style.
This is the concept outlined by Viollet Le Duc in the nineteenth century:
“The building’s outer form should reflect the building’s structure”
The building is emptied in its elevation delineating a basement and the facade part well marked while the attack with the sky consists of a glassy structure, light, almost as if it wants to merge with it.
