+ DESCRIPTION


A complex made up of two buildings 45 metres high with a base of three floors above ground that connect the buildings and render the project uniform, for use as a hotel, office, wellness centre, services.
The “low” buildings define the relationship with the cityscape by characterising the street layout at a scale of perception closer to man; instead the “freely” articulated “high” buildings relate to the city skyline.
The contrast between the rigorous simplicity of the low structures and the strong articulation of the “towers” is the compositional theme that recalls a vision of composition that is quasi-“futurist”.
It is Boccioni’s “The City Rises” with a calibrated relationship between the glass, the opaque portions, and the free markings on the façades that fascinate Bellini this time.
(Ermanno Ranzani)
