Zaha Hadid Office Tower Citylife Milano

Architecture: Zaha Hadid Office Tower Citylife Milano: “..the citylife project located in the heart of milan — in the centre of the historic fiera area, immersed in a park of 160,000 square metres..(one of europe’s largest pedestrianized zones) — involved a group of architects rather than a single designer: zaha hadidarata isozaki and daniel libeskind..citylife brings a new model for work and leisure to the city, an area to be enjoyed on foot or by bicycle, with traffic circulating only underground..at the centre of the project is the business district — three office towers in the ‘piazza delle tre torri’ (square of the three towers): torre isozaki (il dritto, the straight one), torre hadid (lo storto, the twisted one), and torre libeskind (il curvo, the curved one) — torre isozaki will stand 202 m (663 ft)..with 50 floors, among the tallest buildings in italy by roof height. torre hadid will be 170 m (558 ft) high with 44 floors, and torre libeskind will reach a height of 150 m (492 ft) with about 30 floors. the three towers are able to accommodate around 10,000 people, over a total of approximately 130,000 m2. a contemporary art museum, a shopping area with bars and restaurants, and a pavilion for exhibitions, sports, entertainment and fashion shows will supplement the master plan project..”
