• Palazzo Italia building sports a web-like green façade

  • smog-1There is a reason no one around has commissioned Spider Man to design a building off-late. If they did, the Palazzo Italia is probably what they’d get at the end of it all. Designed by Nemesi & Partners, the building’s façade is constructed of nearly 100,000 square feet of special air-purifying cement, made by Italcementi. The building sports a photovoltaic glass roof that produces solar energy and the entire structure also manages to capture pollutants and purify the air.

    The organic look has been put into place to enable the building to blend in with the other buildings at the expo and is inspired by natural architecture. While the Palazzo might look completely out worldly and creepy to some, we think the intention in creating a structure like this is marvelously practical and deserves applause.
