Architect Daniel Libeskind is proposing a design that will drastically change the Eternal City’s skyline: three angular towers that look like they’re “in conversation with one another.”
Making use of Rome’s temperate climate, the tower complex will have a large plaza, as well as terraces and vertical gardens. Huge windows will offer views of Rome’s old town and Vatican City in the distance.
"The towers are clad in a web of opaque panels that breaks up the glazed facade and creates a unified aesthetic between the trio," the architect’s firm said.
According to Dezeen, Libeskind’s design will be part of a three million-sf business park master plan he is planning with American architect Dan Meis. The business park itself is part of a wider redevelopment for the former hippodrome area in Rome’s south, and will include Meis’ 52,500-seat AS Roma soccer stadium.
About the towers’ designs, Libeskind said in a statement: “The volumes fit into each other like antique building blocks creating a composition of elements that are both connected and singular," also creating the look as if they were each cut out of a single block.
