Flex Tower | Paolo Venturella | Via

With the population of new york city constantly on the rise, Paolo Venturella believes that its citizens expect an advanced classification of architecture to arise in retaliation. even if carbon emissions have to be reduced, the use of energy still increases. On his journey to find a solution, the italian architect has developed ‘flex tower.’ The typology proposes the utilization of photovoltaic panels in a controlled manner to prevent a mass dispersement of the system throughout the metropolis. Thus, each one must be tilted and rotated specifically in relation to the sun and relative to where it resides along the façade of the building.

… this is what happens when your Rhino technicians talk you into bad ideas.

By definition this is not a ‘type’, the specificity of location, height, and angle will depend on each project, especially the amount of overhang, casting city streets in shadow at an unprecedented scale. Making each design following this logic ‘a prototype’. Also consider the embodied energy needed to cantilever this building, maybe the photovoltaics offset this, maybe they do not.

Either way, fancy renders and diagrams do not make this feasible or good for our cities. There are lots of other ways to be sustainable, they are just not as flashy.
