I remember that when I was a kid there was this Canadian movie on TV (probably filmed in the 80's, action stuff) where some of the scenes were filmed in some building that used to have giant waterfalls, it left me huge impression, I think I was willing to try and search google to find it, but I couldn't, because I didn't know the name of the city and the memories were sort of faded. I think this might be that very same building. It's such a precious piece of landscape architecture, imagine sitting around the waterfalls enjoying the pleasant noise of the waterfalls, I think someone (might be me) can easily fall asleep in such public place.
The architect had huge creative potential and he used it amazingly.
The waterfalls are wonderful. The whole space is just really well designed with lots of shade and space for sitting. There's actually a glass wall behind the waterfall so the workers inside get to enjoy it too.
What I also like is the greenery flowing over the edge of the concrete just like the water.

I don't really like the building itself, but the landscaping is absolutely beautiful.

Can anyone identify this building? I think it's in Italy and the photo is from 1969
