Antonio Sant' Elia

Sant' Elia, Antonio (äntôˈnyō sänt āˈlēä) [key], 1888–1916, Italian architect. Associated with the movement known as futurism, he created visionary drawings of futurist houses that he likened to gigantic machines. His projects for urban complexes suggest the functional architecture of the 1920s. He died on the battlefield before his plans could be realized.
