The Enoki project is installed above the actual city of Rome and it integrates itself with the historical part of the city. It draws its’ lifeblood from parks, green areas and water courses to push itself upward. They are small self-contained cities with residences, commercial spaces, green areas, spaces for community activities, sport and cultural activities. The outer skin, made with steel diamond-shaped panels, appropriately follows the main cellular structure of the enoki made from steel and glass and having a molecular shape. A thermoformed glass surface provides a lucid and static resistance with the possibility of infinite curvatures with lower costs.


The Enoki project consists of 150 stories. The classic lifts are replaced by flying shuttles that run outside the enoki bringing inhabitants to and from different levels of the building and the old city. Enoki can accommodate up to 6,000 residents with an area of 240,000 square meters and 300,000 square meters for recreational activities for the “new city”.
