Hadid Tower for CityLife, Milan is one of three towers which represent the future business and shopping district in the heart of city – central historic Fiera area. While other two towers were designed by Arata Isozaki and Andra Maffei – “the straight one” and Daniel Libeskind – “the curved one”, “the twisted one” designed by Zaha Hadid features a dynamic vertical twisting motion that enhances the perception and views of its urban surroundings. Three towers are part of the wider redevelopment program of this historical trade fair area of Milan, one of the largest pedestrian zones in Europe. In order to be enjoyed on foot or by bicycle, the traffic in this district is circulating only underground.

CityLife, new, modern and progressive district, provides its inhabitants with new model for work and leisure. Hadid Tower, currently under construction, creates a portal to Fiera Milano – 43-storey, 190 meters high retail skyscraper is emerging from the site, giving shape to a torsion due to its slow rising and twisting from the base. The aim was to release horizontal energy into vertical, spiraling vector mimicking snaking forms of the housing across.

Lower levels facilitate  shopping area with covered walkways connected to the metro station, while 39 of 43 floors of this office tower are destined to provide high-level executive functions, over a total floor space of 45 000 sqm, and are able to house approximately 3 200 people. The tower has been pre-certified LEED Gold – it is characterized by an impressively high level of efficiency, with focus on internal environment comfort and energy costs.
