VENICE, ITALY, 2010
This proposition is for the recycling of a derelict skyscraper to become a largely closed loop, the old idea of a vertical neighborhood. Housing 500 people, it harmonizes inputs and outputs - with some necessary reliance on external sources - to provide an environmentally autonomous building. Although it provides an infrastructure of conviviality it does not seek to be an enclave: The social life of the city must span all its scales and places.
