MILAN | CityLife - Generali Tower | 177m | 582ft | 44 fl | Com

A ‘twisted’ tower designed by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA) is currently under construction as part of a project which will dramatically alter the skyline of Milan, Italy. Forming part of the CityLife Milano masterplan, and situated in the city’s historic Fiera district, The LEED Gold certified Hadid Tower (Torre Hadid) will be 170m high with 44 floors.

Containing both commercial and office space, with a shopping area which connects to the metro station, the Hadid Tower is being built alongside the 220m Arata Isozaki & AssociatesTower (‘the straight one’) and the 150m Daniel Libeskind Tower (‘the curved one’).

Designed with a distinctive twisted shape and dubbed ‘Lo storto’ (the Twisted One) the retail section situated at the bottom of the tower rises and twists to give way to a galleria and promenade. These twisting lines continue up through the tower to form a vertical ‘spiralling vector’.

Reminds me a bit of Torre Espacio in Madrid. I hope this will look as nice as Torre Isozaki and will form a nice cluster for Citylife.

Construction should start within a couple months. The proper name is "lo Storto", though, not "twisted Hadid tower"

Seems to be preparing the foundations of the tower, but unfortunately the site is very large and the tower is in the middle, in a difficult position to be kept under control for us fans.

The tower emerging from the site, giving shape to a torsion or vortex, a slow rising and twisting from its base. Horizontal energy is realeased into a vertical, spiralling vector aligned with a sneaking forms of the housing across the area of CityLife.
