” Left: TORRE PLURALISTA
Inspired by the Italian architect Gaetano Pesce, who designed the supporting structure and the acces-system.
To finalize the tower he invited 11 architects to draw a maisonette of 400 m². (image from Ecstacity, Nigel Coates)

Right: THEOREM
“By 1909 the promised rebirth of the world, as announced by the Globe Tower, reaches Manhattan in the form of a cartoon that is actually a theorem that describes the ideal performance of the Skyscraper: a slender steel structure supports 84 horizontal planes, all the size of the original plot.
Each of these artificial levels is treated as a virgin site, as if the others did not exist, to establish a strictly private realm around a single country house and its attendant facilities, stable, servants’ cottages, etc.” (from Delirious NY)”
