Dominique Perrault unveils design for Milan 

This project for two hotels in the new Trade Fair in Rho-Pero, Milan, fits in with the city’s great architectural-building tradition. The two hotel towers form a simple yet powerful landmark. They are two-tone, black on the east and north facades, immaculate white to the south and west. They are sixty meters tall; each inclined at an angle of 5 degrees and accommodates 400 3-star and 4-star hotel rooms, conference centre and 3,700 square meters of public space. The two towers project out by just over 11 centimetres every meter in height and the fronts are fitted with various size windows forming irregular patterns on the façade. The observation decks at the top are constructed in the structure.
