Il Dritto: rendition of 1988 Tokyo Ueno Station project

It’s quite a story when a project is given a second chance to become a built work. Especially if the designer is one of the world's greatest architects and the building reaches the respectable height of 207 metres (679ft). Awaiting its inauguration in June 2015, Il Dritto claims to be one the tallest skyscraper in Italy with its 50 floors above ground overlooking Milan. But it turns out that this iconic building is not solely the expression of innovation as many believe. It is also the output of a persistent will.

It was first designed by Arata Isozaki in 1988, and therefore expected to become the tallest of Japan at that time. It should have been housed in Tokyo, as the most prominent building among JR Ueno Station Redevelopment. For its architectural relevance Isozaki’s masterplan for Ueno Station (1988-1995) promptly got the attention of the media home and overseas. The Chicago Tribune Home Guide titled in 1989: Transformed Tokyo station to be city’s tallest building. Unfortunately, something didn’t work out.

In 1995 on the December issue of Japan Railway & Transport Review, architectural journalist David B. Stewart reported that Isozaki’s project was currently “held in abeyance”. The skyscraper (originally 67-floor), with slim profile and “supported in a dramatic and visible fashion by huge outside struts”, had been found unsuitable after wind-turbolence studies. It is understood that the technological gap between Ueno Station skyscraper plan and Il Dritto has been filled within the last 20 years. Due to the work of architecture firm Andrea Maffei Architects, structural engineering Company Studio Iorio and general contractor Colombo Costruzioni, Il Dritto has found his way to reach for the sky.

Given its vintage design, Il Dritto will stand as the legacy of conceptual architecture to the city of Milan, which Isozaki visited for the first time in 1968 invited by Giancarlo De Carlo (1919-2005) to 14th Milan Design Triennial. Speaking at the press conference about the “significant large scale” of Il Dritto and of “the other features” of the area, Isozaki went back to those old days. “First time I came here there were just a few (tall buildings), of course Duomo the highest, Torre Velasca and Pirelli. A shift time of almost 40 years after, the competition for the redevelopment of the historic fairgrounds started… In regard to Expo Milano 2015, it’s a kind of one-step in the 21st Century for Milano and it might continue further on, it’s not just the moment it arrives. The same happened in Barcellona, and that is what I watched in Tokyo”.
