Emilio Ambasz, Monument Tower. Phoenix (Arizona). 1998

Emilio Ambasz,

Phoenix, USA,

Skyscraper, Offices,


They look like two rocks from Monument Valley, with an oasis in their heart offering shelter from Arizona's oppressive heat: the office towers designed by Argentine architect Emilio Ambasz rise in downtown Phoenix, across from historical Patriot's Square.

Emilio Ambasz, Monument Tower. Phoenix (Arizona). 1998 Both towers have four atriums two storeys high, opening directly onto street level and linked with the elevator. A plaza between the towers provides access to the common entrance for minor leaseholders.
The mezzanine floor houses multi-purpose utilities, while the other levels are used for offices, organised in such a way as to respond to the tenants' flexible requirements.
The complex also has a large parking lot on six underground levels, accessed via a plaza in the form of a canyon between the towers.

In this project, Ambasz's architecture once again reveals its ability to dialogue with the environment, as more than an ordinary construction, but a work that stimulates the imagination and more: a place where refined creativity is combined with the most effective technology.
