CITYLIFE, PWC TOWER
Citylife, pwc tower, milan
One of the three iconic towers that define the groundbreaking new Milan neighborhood of CityLife, PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) Tower joins Generali Tower and Allianz Tower at the heart of Daniel Libeskind’s winning master plan for the area. With iconic designs by famous architects, each high-rise is a functional work of art that moves boldly beyond superficial extrusions, creating a complex disposition of spaces with exciting forms and breathtaking vistas of the surrounding city.
The PwC Tower was created with a focus on cutting-edge architecture, building materials, and environmental sustainability. The building, known affectionately as Il Curvo (“The Curve”) by the Milanese, gently curves over the piazza, embracing it like a shard of a Renaissance dome. Fabricated with 600 tons of steel and glass, the building’s most distinctive element is its ‘crown’, a 40 meter tall structure, which not only contains the building’s maintenance, air conditioning, and rainwater recycling system but also doubles as both a viewing platform and an art gallery for the general public.
The project was realized collaboratively with Lev Libeskind, Daniel Libeskind, and their respective studios.
