In 2017 ArtesMechanicae created for a private installation in Dubai some models taken from Leonardo da Vinci's drawings. Some of these are small scale models, designed to be placed inside special crystal displays, a large scale flying wing model designed to be suspended to a ceiling, and a hydraulic machine. The latter required a complex design of hydraulic systems which regulate flows between the compartments, as well as a mechanical project which guarantees the continuous operation of the machine. A work that represents an unprecedented synthesis between philological techniques and modern technology.
