Richard Meier designs Mexico city skyscraper

  • Comment

Richard Meier & Partners Architects has unveiled plans for a 34-storey mixed-use tower in Mexico City

The practice behind Rowan Atkinson’s controversial new home in rural Oxfordshire has designed the skyscraper to sit within a masterplan designed by fellow US firm Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects.

The Mitikah Office Tower will rise above a ‘transparent and translucent’ building base, while a six-story underground garage provides parking for the building.

The design includes a sky garden with an integrated conference pavilion on the 19th floor, and a restaurant and sky-bar on the 34th floor.

Design partner-in-charge Bernhard Karpf said: ‘Mexico City has always been among the most important cultural and commercial centers in Latin America. 

‘The new tower will undoubtedly contribute visual significance to the skyline of the city and the neighborhood. The design is inspired by a modern interpretation of Aztec forms.’

The scheme, which is expected to be LEED-certified, is due for completion in 2014.
