Known as “The Curved One” during the planning stage, the last Tower to be built was conceived by its creator, Daniel Libeskind, as part of an ideal sphere encompassing and completing the ‘Tre Torri’ Square.
Situated between Hadid and Isozaki’s buildings, the Libeskind Tower slopes in toward its counterparts and the central park below. Each building has an individual expression, yet all three are coupled in a cohesive arrangement in order to create the grand public piazza.
The Tower, 175 meters high (574 ft.) and 28 storeys, will host executive offices and will be directly connected to the shopping gallery and to the new underground line 5. The curved tower’s facade consists of sustainable, state of the art glass, which will reflect the public space below and vistas around.
The upper part of the Tower is known as The Crown and is characterized by a glass structure whose geometrical lines complete the building, closing the spherical tendency, which is crucial to the project concept.
