babilonia

In 2010 Raffaella has been asked by Alessandro Mendini and Silvana Annicchiarico to be part of the Babilonia Project with a new project  exhibited at the exhibition Quali cose siamo (The Things We Are), in the Triennale Design Museum.
The tower is inspired by the idea of a continuous city that is spread over a spiral shape. The concept of sky scraper is replaced by a spiral that support not only habitative modules, but  nature, trees, public squares and animals. A more human dimension. On the top, a big red funnel collects rainwater and distributes it to the structure while at the base, a thermal stack gathers heat and cooling from the ground, for ecological sustainability.

Client: Triennale Design Museum, Triennale di Milano, 2010
