The chosen area, Zurich North, is already specified as an appropriate site for this type of building by the city of Zurich’s “Hochhausplan.” It is a site in transformation. Its Cartesian coordinates are the following: the north-south axis links the city with the airport and with its constructive energies in action, and the axis southwest accumulates urban facilities and rail networks. Siting the building's location responds to the different forces present: the large scale of the metropolis as well as the small scale of the immediate neighbors. As usual in this type of building, it is intended for generic, subdivided, and rentable office space. Our goal is to imagine a tall building, a new piece of architecture qualified and singular in a city under construction.
