All civilizations have made use of architecture to show those social, economic and political structures which represented the values of a society. These constructions, beyond their architectural value, are seen as a result of the common occurrence that necessarily involves its existence. The modern debate on large scale constructions is the confrontation between architecture and city. Le Corbusier and Koolhaas appear as two exemplary cases, whose theories and large scale projects have the commonality of seeking new enriching situations for the people and for the cities. The Wolkenbügel of El Lissitzky confirm the inexorable urban condition of the large objects, whereas in the Noah’s Ark project of PietBlom, the large building is replaced by mechanisms capable of creating a diverse spatial structure that simultaneously satisfies the small and the large scale. The infrastructure, networks and systems of communication, reveal their vital function in all these types of projects.
