This Is What Sant'Elia Drew in 1912-14...

Futurist architect Sant’Elia’s 1914 sketch for a train station angered and intrigued viewers, sparking debate in the practical and theoretical realms of architecture. Showcased in Sant’Elia’s influential ‘New Tendencies’ exhibition, the design embodied Futurist architectural principles and remains widely studied both academically and through the medium of cinema today. Despite its influence however, the design was never realised on an actual site, solely existing as a single perspective sketch.
