The Plan Issue 135

The Plan

"The Plan - Architecture & Technologies in Detail", since October 2018 published by Maggioli Group, was founded by Nicola Leonardi and Carlotta Zucchini in 2001.

The issue opens with an editorial in which Patrick Schumacher, director of Zaha Hadid Architects, looks at high-intensity vertical developments. Almost a hundred years after Ludwig Hilberseimer proposed the idea, the vertical city will be at the center of a new urban revolution, while the buildings that compose it – skyscrapers – will act as social connectors rather than just ways to concentrate humans into one area. Schumacher illustrates his ideas with projects by Zaha Hadid.
