Paolo Venturella + Angelo Balducci's 'Twilt Tower' Captures the Sun

Paolo Venturella + Angelo Balducci's 'Twilt Tower' Captures the Sun | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

Disagreeing with the 'Eurosky Tower' by Franco Purini, located in a modern area on the outskirts of rome, italian architects Paolo Venturella + Angelo Balducci have delivered an alternative concept. 


Examining the idea of 'integration' between architecture and renewable energy, the architects offer a radically different shape for the same building. Called 'the Twilt Tower' the name is based on a combination of the words 'twisted' and 'twilted'. The tower integrates photovoltaic panels not just on the roof but evenly across the volume, dictating its form. the tilting and rotating of the panels towards the sun's rays, allows for direct sun radiation throughout the whole day.

Twisting towers in Miami, Florida by Bjarke Ingels (BIG)

Twisting towers in Miami, Florida by Bjarke Ingels (BIG) | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

BIG, Raymond Jungles, Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates, Esrawe, Desimone + HNGS, transform the Coconut Grove Waterfront with twisting towers in Miami Florida, USA.


Developed by Terra Group, the Grove at Grand Bay residences, at the former site of the Grand Bay Hotel and minutes from downtown Miami, seeks to breath new life into Coconut Grove. With construction scheduled to begin the fourth quarter of 2012 and completion at the end of 2014, the project seeks LEED Silver Certification, the first of its kind in Coconut Grove.

Rising 20 stories, the towers will showcase 96 residences with panoramic views from every angle as they readjust their orientation to capture the full breadth of panoramic views from sailboat bays and the marina to the Miami skyline. The interactive movement of the two towers creates a new dancing silhouette on the Grove’s skyline.


Whether in the shade of the buildings’ twisting facades or inside, residents will fully experience and relish living amid the open air. The gardens and architecture will fuse seamlessly at the amenity levels, maximizing indoor outdoor living experiences unique to the South Florida climate. Views down into the gardens, towards the surrounding canopied neighborhoods, and beyond Sailboat Bay will offer peaceful, verdant backdrops to elegant residential interiors and vast balconies...
