Span Over Blocks

Year:1957-1958
These blocks represent the technical principles of mobile architecture. The building's impact on the ground is reduced to a minimum: the whole building is supported by very few pillars with spans of 30 to 50 meters. All vertical communication (elevators, staircases, main commodity ducts etc) are concentrated within the pillars. The first sketches of the span-over blocks use a suspension technique, later substituted by a space frame skeleton.
Themes: - principles Ville Spatiale
- tetrahedron
