Fascinated by pipes, ducts and storage tanks, I had the incredible opportunity to be involved in a project for a water treatment plant, commissioned by Milan Aqueduct Authority, to be built right in the center of Milan, next to the Triennale.

This is how a uncompromising industrial structure became an alien landing pad, with rows upon rows of metallic creatures, that are a crossbreed between Jeff Hawke’s medusoids of the 1950-70’s with the spik-and-span long tradition of shiny robots from Metropolis’ Maria to, ante litteram, Futurama Bender.

Sadly this work went totally unnoticed.
