The high-rise building concept by Nicolas Laisné is presented at the Arsenale for part of the Venice Architecture Biennale. With this project, the French architect hopes to envision the future of this type of architecture and how tall structures can allow cities to become better places to live—such products are a priority in the context of the ever-growing urban environment.
Nicolas Laisné named the project ‘One Open Tower’ and has described it as “an allegory.” The floor plan combines “live and workplaces, indoor and outdoor rooms, and various degrees of privacy.” In doing so, the architect hopes to give residents greater flexibility, including access to nature and different opportunities for interaction. This answers various urban needs, especially the increasingly blurred lines between work and home environments.
