They have grown at a rhythm of one floor every 15 days and now lean over the city, characterising the Fieramilano Rho landscape.
At the base of the towers there are car parks and water tanks that reflect the facades in shiny black stoneware. The terraces with a view at the summit are set inside the volume of the buildings.
A SCULPTURED SKYSCRAPER
The star architect, Daniel Libeskind, took inspiration from the Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo Buonarroti: a work which transmits affection and protection.
The new hotels form part of a bigger project involving compatible functions such as shops, eating and leisure facilities and green areas. The two towers in marble and the main pedestrian links between the two floors on which the principal external areas are structured signal the entrance of honour into the Trade Fair District from a distance. Every metre of height has a projection of little over 11 cm.
There is a 3-star hotel facing the Trade Fair, and a 4-star hotel facing the covered pedestrian pathway which joins the hotels to the Conference Centre and, further off, towards the city of Milan. The terraces on the top both face the Conference Centre and the entrance of honour into the Trade Fair.

The two hotels are easily recognisable as part of the new complex in the north-west Milan landscape. They appear from afar like two shiny marble monoliths; coming closer, it’s possible to see the two fronts with windows of different dimensions that lend the facades an irregular rhythm. This is the merit of the design by Dominique Perrault, the French architect and planner, which is inspired by American minimalism achieved thanks to “complex casing on simple volumes”.
