CityLife is a residential, commercial and business district still under construction. It is a project to redevelop the historic neighbourhood of Fiera Milano. A big charm is the three skyscrapers by the three world famous architects: Zaha Hadid, Arata Iszaki and Daniel Libeskind.
Straight Line by Arata Iszahi was the first one to build but still under construction. This time, in 2016, it was completed. The building is composed of 8 modules each with 6 floors. The facade is made of triple glass slightly curved outside. It looks like curves of wave flowing upward. It is the highest building in Milan and stands proudly next to Zaha Hadid's The Twisted.
According to the plan the third skyscraper from Libeskind should be built between 2015 and 2018. But there was not yet a clear sign. Not sure with the current economic condition in Italy. Will there be sufficient demand for first class residence or business office? My best wishes that the Italian dream of amazing architecture development will come true very soon.
Not far away is the very impressive Mico Convention Centre. The metallic outlook and special design draws admiral when we were on the hill in the morning. The closer you've got to it, the more stunning you feel. And it is so huge! Funny is a view of it next to The Straight Line and The Twisted.
