The seven buildings look like a single construction, the vertical development of which is halted by a white roof. The thick roof they all share becomes a unifying architectural element, an even more obvious perception at night when it is lit up and clearly visible from panoramic spots all over the city.
The overall architectural plan is by Foster + Partners, but the project involved a number of Turin studios and professionals coordinated by Tecnimont Civil Construction, including Giugiaro Architettura.
The building was designed with a great focus on the issues of environmental sustainability and energy conservation, using innovative low impact materials.
Design: Foster and Partners
