Torre Velasca for Audi
Torre Velasca, created by BBPR architects, is 106 meters high and was completed in 1958 in direct neighborhood of the Dome. The architecture absorbs several elements of the ancient city of Milan and leads it into the future. The narrow spaces of the lower floors held shops, offices and exhibitions, while the more spacious upper stories contained apartments with spectacular views overlooking the city. The upper third of the building, which protrudes outward from the lower levels, was designed to resemble medieval watchtowers.
