A city long overshadowed by its industrial greyness, Milan is finally taking its revenge. It has placed its architectural revival in the hands of people like Zaha Hadid and Araka Isozaki.
Built on a former railway yard near the Garibaldi train station in the new district of Puerto Nueva, the Unicredit Tower is the new pride of the Milanese. At a height of 230 metres, it is the tallest tower in Italy and the most connected to sustainable development. Sheathed in glass, the Unicredit bank headquarters was designed by the Argentinean architect, César Pelli. Its visual beauty and ecological features have earned it numerous prestigious awards.
With the sky reflected on its exterior panels, it absorbs solar energy, significantly reducing the lighting and heating costs of its 33 floors. The three-building complex houses offices, restaurants, and shops.
