CityLife is a new residential, commercial and business district in Milan, Italy. The project involved the construction of three skyscrapers, with dedicated areas for offices, stores, restaurants and services. The luxury residential area covers 164,000 m2 with some 1,300 apartments (housing 4,500 people). The buildings were designed by such famous architects as Zaha Hadid, Arata Isozaki and Daniel Libeskind, and more than 50% of the available area, 170,000 m2, was devoted to green spaces. CityLife is the largest car-free area in Milan and one of the biggest in Europe. Cars can reach garages and parking areas along an innovative underground road system.

Allianz Tower Milan

The new PWC Tower, designed by Studio Libeskind, completes the CityLife project and is one of the three iconic commercial high-rise buildings. AGC supplied glass for all three towers:

Lo Storto ("The Twisted One") – Generali Tower

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the building is shaped with a helical twist that becomes less pronounced the higher it rises. The skyscraper’s double-facade of sun-deflecting louvers and AGC Sunergy Clear and Stopray Vision-50T solar control glazing ensures excellent energy performance, contributing to the LEED certification of the building.

Il Curvo ("The Curved One") - PWC Tower

Daniel Libeskind designed the tower with a unique curved shape. The façade features AGC's highly performing solar control glazing offering a maximum of natural light and comfort for the occupants of the building. ipasol neutral 50/27 on Clearvision was chosen for the exterior and Stratobel Clearvision for the interior of the tower.

Il Dritto ("The Straight One") – Allianz Tower

A unique architectural design by Arata Isozaki & Andrea Maffei Architects with a curved glass façade created by cold bent glass. The building has 120,000 m² of AGC's highly transparent Clearvision glass, in triple glazing with solar control Stopray Vision-60T and thermal insulation features.

Designed and constructed to reduce energy consumption and emissions, the projects within CityLife have received LEED Gold certification from the US Green Building Council (USGBC). A great example of how AGC's cutting edge glass technologies support sustainable architectural design and embellish the skyline of cities.
