The Tower of David

October 2012

Highly urban thinking
Here’s a happy story. We like it because it shows that humans are capable of mighty things in dire circumstances. A tower building in Caracas has become inhabited en masse by local residents seeking shelter, who have succeeded in making of it a thriving urban village. We have a chat with Urban-Think Tank, who are currently exhibiting this winning project in all its glory at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
