Public building, in Bisaccia, Italy, 1983 – Aldo Loris Rossi


More on the architect here.


  1. I am all FOR unusual architecture, but this one just doesnt come off for some reason

  2. I associate the feel with JG Ballard. Ruins, post-civilisation, Empty cracked concrete swimming pools..

  3. Looks like a 'castle' signature, perhaps for the urban village to survive in post-catastrophic event? A survivalist bunker?

    Is that the sonic weapon from Atlas Shrugged sitting on the roof being used as an anti-aircraft gun?

  5. That hideous thing looks as though it belongs in Mos Eisley.
