Renzo Piano: Intesa Sanpaolo tower in Turin (Italy)

On the edge of Turin's old quarter, close to Porta Susa train station, rises the new headquarters of the Italian banking group Intesa Sanpaolo, a project of the Genoan architect Renzo Piano, after five years of construction work. The 166-meter tower contains three underground levels for parking, a lobby traversed by a gallery leading to the Nicola Grosa garden, an auditorium seating 364 people, 26 floors of office space, and on top, a three-level greenhouse open to the public and offering a restaurant, an exhibition hall, and a terrace with panoramic views of the city. While the south facade incorporates photovoltaic panels to capture solar energy, the double skin of glass and white-lacquered aluminum regulates the heat through a system of openings and screens with motorized blinds, keeping sunlight and temperature comfortable for employees.
