Trouble in Paradise

Trouble in Paradise A Rio towering Inferno
This is the tale of a tower. A tower that formed part of a group of four many years ago but had the dubious honour of being the only one to remain unscathed, being uninhabited all this time and thus inadvertently becoming quite the perfect record of the 76 identical buildings that were conceived in 1970. Two Dutch artists have embraced this marvel and are doing the utmost to package the story in a sharable form.
