IT SEEMS BOTH ARROGANT AND NAIVE—IT IS NOT A CULTURAL OR POLITICAL SYMBOL— THE ROOF IS FINISHED IN BRUSHED BRASS AND THE INTERIOR WALLS ARE WHITE
Vanity by FALA Atelier





The office tower we don’t need wants to impress; it seems both arrogant and naïve.

The office tower we don’t need is not very clear on its intentions; it is not a cultural or political symbol.

The office tower we don’t need is an heroic carved block of marquina marble; the roof is finished in brushed brass and the interior walls are white.

The office tower we don’t need has a circular plan; it does not relate to any specific surrounding and could be anywhere we would like it to be.

The office tower we don’t need has many circular and square windows; each opening creates a unique relation to the outside.

The office tower we don’t need has four levels; the floors are connected by an endless spiral stair.

The office tower we don’t need has a balcony;
smokers love it.

The office tower we don’t need is almost 20m high, which means it is not really a tower.
