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.
