CityLife Skyscraper
The building is part of the program for the redevelopment of the historic trade fair area in Milan, the object of an international competition in 2003 by Fondazione Fiera and won by CityLife with architectural projects by Arata Isozaki, Daniel Libeskind, and Zaha Hadid.
The tower, designed by Arata Isozaki & Andrea Maffei Associates, consists of a modular system which can be repeated indefinitely. The basic module is a long, narrow (24 by 61.5 meters) volume of 6 office floors. The narrow proportions of the plan are intended to make the volume of the tower appear slimmer so as to emphasize its verticality, provocatively declaring the extreme ratio of slimness to height (the tower reaches a height of 202 meters).
Construction for the Endless Tower is scheduled to begin in September 2011 and completion is planned by 2015.
