The Fiera Milano project is located in the heart of Milan, spanning 106 acres on the old fairgrounds of this historic city. The scheme of Fiera Milano incorporates residential and office development, retail space and a museum all built around a central park, a much needed open space within the city. In 2004 Studio Daniel Libeskind along with Zaha Hadid Architects, and Arata Isozaki & Associates won the commission for the development of the site. In addition to leading the master plan, SDL is designing the contemporary art museum, the central office tower, a residential tower, and the first housing parcel.

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

Alviks torn is a sculptural housing complex designed to bring identity to the district – and thereby, to Stockholm. The site lies in a prominent location towards the archipelago, and forms a transition zone between the city and the landscape, which has inspired the architecture. The development – a fractured block of approximately nine storeys and a landmark 21-storey tower divided into two parts – draws its shape and lines from the steepness and structure of the mountains bordering the lake Mälaren.

The New York Tower project is a proposal for a residential tower at One Madison Avenue, overlooking Madison Square Park in Manhattan.  The design features a series of spiraling gardens extending the green of Madison Square along the facade of the tower.  The tower is set back from its neighbors – maintaing views and maximizing light and air.  The building is in its early stages and will reach a more definitive deadline when the proposal enters the public review process.  Studio Daniel Libeskind is working with Elad Properties on this project.
