Tectonic plates must have shifted in order to create this colossal structure, Renzo Piano's Vulcano Buono. Rising from the ashes of hard work and determination, this â€œepic cone-shaped commercial center crowned with a gorgeous sloping green roofâ€ rivals the nearby Mt. Vesuvius in Nola, Italy.
With solar-control double-pane glass and a vegetative carpet of over 2,5000 plants on the roof, this volcanic creation strives to work with nature, not against it - evident as soon as you lay eyes on it.
