Architecture Forgiven by Nature (2017)
The project series documents "Architecture Forgiven by Nature", an installation design by Pettena in 2017. The installation consists of an old water tower at the top of a hill in Brufa, covered with a metal grill. The intention is for plants to grow from the grill and hide the tower behind vegetation. The installation also included a staircase hidden behind the metal grill to give access to the top of the tower, so it could be used as a belvedere. "An additional function therefore joins the usual one, as nature helps to integrate a banal architecture into the landscape while also changing it into a place of consciousness and better understanding of both the environment and the art world."  The project is also known as "Torre di Brufa".
The project series contains a drawing, printouts of digital renderings, plans of the structure surrounding the water tower, and video of Pettena showing the model of the tower.
