The Quartiere delle Albere district in Trento used to be the site of a former Michelin factory. This site shares many characteristics with the urban fabric: the clear hierarchy of the design, its functional stratification, and an overall similarity i
Connected by a foyer that functions in the manner of a plaza, two similar blocks are differentiated only by size and by the nuances of their respective glass facades.
Un nuevo referente se recorta en el perfil de Leicester. Con sus 42 metros de altura, la torre del Centro Nacional del Espacio se eleva en las proximidades de la ribera del Soar como una hermana transparente y gigantesca del famoso muñeco neumático d
Behind nikola tesla’s former laboratory at Wardenclyffe on Long Island, New York, are some old foundations. They are all that remains of a 57-metre tower which Tesla began building in 1901 as part of an experiment to transmit information and electric
China revealed plans to drastically expand an experimental weather modification program to cover an area of over 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles) -- more than 1.5 times the total size of India. According to a statement from th
The 2010s were marked by pessimism about innovation. That is giving way to hope. For much of the past decade the pace of innovation underwhelmed many people—especially those miserable economists. Productivity growth was lacklustre and the most popula
