For prominent site in the center of Turin, Italy, a new tower building is planned. CULD proposed to make this tower a landmark that addresses the complicated context with a hybrid formal and programmatic approach. The base of the tower is shaped to match the triangular ground floor. Higher up the tower shape changes to a slab shape that provides a maximized view down the Spina axis for users and maximizes the impact of the tower for the city. Thus, a complicated shape arises that is a striking landmark and that has a different appearance from all angles, a prominent and dynamic addition to the cityscape.
