Tribute to Antonio Sant’Elia

Antonio Sant’Elia was an italian architect of the futurist movement.
His work was inspired for example by the architects Otto Wagner or Adolf Loos.
He was only 28 years old, when he got fatally wounded in first world war.
Sant’Elia drew a lot of Megastructures as architectural phantasies, for example power plants, in his monumental style.

In 2016 the english studio Atkinson+Co payed homage to Sant’Elia with renderings of his most famous drawings.
