richard meier & partners has announced details of a mixed-use development in the center of mexico city. entitled ‘reforma towers’, the scheme is sensitive to the region’s history and responds directly to the city’s growing economy. the overall design of the project offers potential for the future expansion of the site.

situated along a prominent boulevard, the design comprises two independent structures connected through a shared base. the taller of the two towers is a 40-storey building which will accommodate high end offices, retail outlets and dining and recreational facilities. the separate 27-floor structure will house a hotel complimenting its larger neighbor.

the development is situated along a prominent boulevard in the city

challenging the conventional typology of multi-storey buildings, a central void is carved through the volume establishing an elevated urban courtyard. natural light will filter through this void, with the program redistributed into unorthodox yet efficient configurations. the structure’s transparent façades emphasize views of across the city.

collaborating with associate architect diametro arquitectos and structural engineer WSP group, the project is scheduled to be completed by 2015.



[...]


the central void flood the upper levels of the tower with natural light
