Description

On the set of planning application plans, the building section shows only nine floors, with seven studios per floor looking onto the viaduct, reached through access-balconies. Another set of plans mentions its non-conformity to the 1952 law. In reality, the owner added six floors to the ones permitted, without consent. The higher part of the building sets back in a ziggurat-like shape, which might be a sign that the owner wanted to show goodwill. The building’s shape is strongly reminiscent of New York’s ‘wedding-cake’ skyscrapers (see ‘New York’ in Typology—Hong Kong, Rome, New York, Buenos Aires (Zurich: Park Books, 2012)).
