Tower question

Would Fuksas design office towers again, after the events of 11 September? Probably not, was his answer at a private supper at the Academy after the debate. He recently designed a pair of towers for Vienna, in which he tried to encompass the idea of a city within a building; his headquarters competition entry for Piedmontese regional offices in Turin comprised 'floating space behind vertical facades'. Fuksas seems to be striving for what he described as 'architecture without form', a design ethos based on 'the space between'. It sounded pretty Roman. And the immaculate technical presentation of slides, interviews and snappily edited videos reminded us that Rome is the home of Cinecitta.
