The PwC tower, designed by Daniel Libeskind for Piazza Tre Torri in Milan, has recently been completed by the Focchi Group, an architectural building-envelope company. Also called Curvo because of its curved shape, the building stands between Torre Generali, designed by Zaha Hadid, and Torre Allianz, designed by Arata Isozaki and Andrea Maffei.
Built starting from 2015, the tower is part of the new CityLife commercial complex and will house the offices of the international PricewaterhouseCoopers Group. The project, also firmed by Agostino Ghirardelli of Sbga studio, features a height of 175 metres, 39 floors and a dome of over 30 metres inspired by Michelangelo’s Pietà Rondanini. As Maurizio Focchi, CEO of the Focchi Group, points out, there are “over 5,000 glazed cells for a total of 26,000 square metres of facade”.
The tower has obtained LEED certification with GOLD rating for the attention given to sustainability — the high performance glass panels, the photovoltaic glass panels of the dome, the rainwater recovery system.
