urban totem
mississauga (canada) 2006 - mentioned
The strategic position of the tower at an urban level has addressed towards the development of a project based on the concept of an ‘urban totem’, which can become a ‘catalyzing’ symbol for commercial and business activities as well as for a dynamic and enthusiastic lifestyle. This aspect has been developed not only in a programmatic, but also in a formal way by creating a tower made up of overlapping “mega-bricks” that rotate around the “core” axis as the peak is approached. These elements contain within themselves three floors each and are conceived as small communities featuring different housing units, both simplex and duplex, of variable size.
