DESCRIPTION

A micro-architecture designed by Daniel Libeskind, a direct tribute to his friend Aldo Rossi, Milanese architect and keen enthusiast of the dialectic rapport between urban planning and domestic landscape. “Water Tower” is a container that draws its inspiration from typical water tanks that populate the roofs of the New York skyline. The concentric rings along the body of the container, the pointed lid and the articulated base structure reproduce in minute detail the large tanks which distinguish the landscape of the American city. A sophisticated and complex object, ensuing from the manufacturing skills acquired by the engineers at the factory in Crusinallo, Omegna.
