Humanoid Columns to Support Modern Skyscrapers for 10,000 years
A graduate from the architecture of the Royal College of Art, Alice Theodorou, presented her proposal for the Mount Pleasant Mail Centre where architectural style makes the most important feature of any structure. Theodorou has adopted some of the oldest architectural elements in his building project aiming to provide the highest possible durability of the structure. Incorporated inside the modern lines, atlantes and caryatids- the supportive columns in the form of large male and female figures will replace the traditional architectural framework.
According to Theodorou, her project “The Future Will Just Have To Wait” will be build to outlive all possible challenges that London could face in this century and remain standing as a testament to our civilisation and of the world that we know.
