Libeskind Tower: now under construction after the completion of Isozaki and Zaha Hadid’s projects

City Life begins to build the tower created by archistar Daniel Libeskind, the last one missing in the Business and Shopping District after the completion of Allianz Tower and Generali Tower


 The photograph represents the project of Libeskind Tower, which is likely to be completed in 2018. Foundations were built in November 2015 and the construction has begun on the 28th of June 2016.

CityLife’s final skyline appears to be soon completed now that also Libeskind Tower, the third and last one of the buildings of CityLife Business and Shopping District, has begun its construction. The other two skyscrapers are already structurally completed: Allianz Tower, designed by Arata Isozaki and Andrea Maffei and Generali Tower, born from the project of Zaha Hadid.

The tower, which will be completed in 2018, will be directly connected with the mall of CityLife Shopping District and with the underground station of Piazza Tre Torri, stop of the new underground’s line M5, under construction.

“We were inspired by Renaissance cupolas and by Pietà Rondanini, the sculpture by Michelangelo. The cupola is a classic element in architecture, able to define the inner perimeter of the building while also being an urban element, highly recognisable within the territory. To reinforce this idea, I have deeply studied Leonardo’s analyses of the cupola’s role. Same concepts and feelings were aroused in me by Pietà Rondanini, Michelangelo’s astonishing sculpture. The piece, visible in Milan, is able to transmit feelings of protection and intimacy, the same ones caused by the vision of the cupola. These inspirations led us to conceive our tower, an urban element able to dialogue with the other two skyscrapers while also defining a new gathering place for the city, the square. Moreover our tower wants to be a recognisable urban landmark in the master plan of CityLife’s future skyline.” – The architect’s studio explained us.

The result is a curvy and sinuous building from the outside while, in the inside, the space results homogenized by a series of rooms created on every floor, in order to support the bending development of the building. On the ground floor, the double height lobby dialogues with Tre Torri square.
