TOWER IN BRUFA
Architecture forgiven by Nature
Brufa, Perugia, 2017
The big water tower, still in use, is set in the middle and at the top of a hill where works by several artists, among which Staccioli, Marotta and Nagasawa, can be seen and, because of its position, is the focus of that space, overlooking both the surrounding valleys and the historical center of Brufa. With the addition of a winding staircase hidden by a metal grill network which is going to be covered by climbing flowered plants, the tower becomes a public belvedere. An additional function therefore joins the usual one, as nature helps to integrate a banal architecture into the landscape while also changing it into a place of consciousness and better understanding of both the environment and the art world.
