A new tower by Zaha Hadid has topped out in Italy.
The Generali Tower is 170 metres tall, boasting 44 stories across its unique twisting structure. Each floor twists around a vertical axis, producing a gradual curve which provides ‘broader views and connections across the city’ until the building faces Milan.
The sleek skyscraper is part of the CityLife masterplan and is joined by the Isozaki Tower and the Libeskind Tower on an expansive pedestrianised piazza. This new development is said to be open ‘to year-round public use, with the inclusion of new civic spaces, public parks, and residential buildings…all with direct transport connections via the Tre Torri station’.
The tower showcases a double-façade system and sun-deflecting louvers, adding interesting textural features to the building and improving its sustainability credentials.
