Architecture Project Nothingness

This future building will generate its own power and, like something invisible, cast no shadows.
Le Project Triangle is one of those buildings that make us think that we may actually drive flying cars one day. To be completed by 2014 in the Porte de Versailles area in Paris, its most impressive feature is that, according to the architects, it won’t cast shadows on adjacent buildings. The trick is the orientation and its shape: While it looks like a massive pyramid from one side, the other side shows that it really is an ultra-thin triangle resembling a shark’s fin.
Expressed in this fin of a building is the lasting longing for the thinness of a thing’s nothingness.
