Meier designs twin towers for Mexico City

  • Comment

Richard Meier & Partners has designed this mixed-use twin-tower scheme in Mexico City

The Reforma Towers will contain offices, a hotel, retail space, restaurants and a fitness centre in the Americas’ biggest city.

Located on Paseo de la Reforma, the proposed development aims to be sensitive to the history of Mexico and its architectural legacy.

An iconic 40-storey mixed-use tower will be joined at the base to a 27-floor hotel designed in the same vein.

Bernhard Karpf, design partner-in-charge at Richard Meier & Partners, said: ‘At the centre of development there is a void, an urban courtyard, in the main tower which is a celebration of space, form and light.

‘We have designed the surface and the volumes of the towers to take advantage of natural light, changes of scale and views to the city.’

Local practice Diametro Arquitectos and structural engineers WSP have worked with Richard Meier & Partners on the building.

The main tower will be 180m high, with the hotel reaching 110m.

The project is Richard Meier & Partner’s sixth in Latin America. It will complete construction on the Leblon Offices in Rio de Janeiro next year.
