Official web site of the 32-floor tower and shopping mall

http://www.palladium.com.tr







The name "Palladium" may have two meanings:

1) "God's Sphere" (there's a large glass sphere in the project, while the Palladium logo also has a sphere)

2) Andrea Palladio, the famous late Renaissance architect who reutilized the architectural style of ancient Greece and Rome, creating magnificent buildings especially in the Veneto region (former Repubblica Serenissima of Venice) in Italy.

Note the "colonnade" in the garden, for example.

Palladio was especially famous for his villas and "rotundas", therefore spherical/circular forms can also be attributed to his architectural style.

Excellent project, my only wish is that the main tower would be taller. :(
