PWC Libeskind Tower, Citylife

Best of 2020
Nominee
The PricewaterhouseCoopers Tower, designed by Studio Libeskind, will complete the business district of the CityLife master plan in Milan. Close to the center of the new grand central park, it is one of three iconic commercial high-rise buildings. Situated between towers designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and Arata Isozaki & Associates who won the competition in conjunction with Studio Libeskind in 2004.
The Libeskind Tower draws on the sphere for inspiration and slopes inward towards its counterparts and the central park below. PricewaterhouseCoopers will become the single tenant of the Libeskind Tower at CityLife, which is 175 meters high (574 ft.) for 28 storeys, and will house 3,000 professionals, 500 staff, and four service lines for customers. The curved tower’s facade is made of sustainable, state of the art glass, that will reflect the public space below and vistas around. It is personally crafted and conceived to provide a sculpted and highly visible skyline on the site. The tower has been created in line with state-of-the-art building and environmental sustainability criteria, making it one of the most recognizable buildings of the new Milan skyline.
The designs of each of the skyscrapers go beyond superficial treatments of facades and create a spatial and functional disposition of spaces with extraordinary internal vistas and internal activities for the users. At the base of each tower, there is retail and particular public amenities that help to dissolve the boundary between the public and private commercial realm. The towers have been carefully positioned in order to provide appropriate shade, maximum light and a pleasant atmosphere at the pedestrian level. This allows for the new piazza to be a huge amenity for both the new housing inhabitants and the workers in the office complexes.
