Torre Reforma by LBR&A Arquitectos

LBR&A Arquitectos has completed a three-sided skyscraper in the heart of Mexico City that rises 246 metres, making it the tallest tower in the sprawling metropolis. The 57-storey Torre Reforma is situated on Paseo de la Reforma, a wide avenue that runs through the city’s urban core. The skyscraper is located in a diverse neighbourhood and looks toward the 686-hectare Chapultepec Park – regarded as the largest city park in the Western Hemisphere.

Torre Reforma is one of the leading skyscrapers in a developing area where many others are yet to come,” said LBR&A Arquitectos, a local firm led by architect Benjamin Romano. Encompassing 87,000 square metres of floor area, the building contains offices and retail space. It is organised into 14 four-storey clusters, conceived as “buildings within a building”. Each cluster has its own interior garden.

Given its relatively small footprint of 2,800 square metres, the tower marks “a turning point in vertical urban growth in the megalopolis of Mexico City“, said the architects. Its sculptural shape was derived from various factors, including environmental concerns. The tower is composed of two concrete walls that form a sharp edge where they meet. The upper portion is chamfered, resulting in a triangular surface. Slits in the walls enable natural light to enter the gardens inside the building.

GIO PONTI. Loving architecture

Design | July 9, 2020

Architect, designer, art director, writer, poet and critic, Gio Ponti was an allround artist who traversed much of the 20th century, profoundly influencing the taste of his time, responding to its most significant demands and anticipating many of the themes of contemporary architecture. 40 years on from his passing, MAXXI, the National Museum of XXI Century Arts, is devoting a major retrospective to this exceptional figure. The exhibition examines and presents his multi-faceted career, starting with an account of his architecture, a unique and original synthesis of tradition and modernity, history and progress, elite culture and quotidian existence.
