DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

 
The concept from which the United States architect Daniel Libeskind took inspiration to design the third CityLife tower was the classic Renaissance dome, reinterpreted through the concave shape.
 
The building on the ground floor contains a triple-height entrance hall, accessible both from the Shopping District and the M5 subway exit, and from the upper level of the new city square. The offices occupy the first floor to the twenty-eighth floor. The twenty-seventh floor houses an office on two levels and a very impressive double-height conference hall.
 
The central core, occupied by eight elevators divided into two distinct blocks, guarantees maximum flexibility of use of the spaces also in the event of there being a number of tenants.

“In work like this, you have to be able to find a strategy for tackling the job order, as far as the management of the samples. There’s nothing standardized in our profession”.

The right curve

The “Curve” begins to take shape. Work continues, and the Libeskind tower rises ever higher towards the sky. With a number of floors already completed, the characteristic curve starts to emerge.
