Big in Zürich- PrimeTower by GigonGuyer

Posted in building, zurich by tot on November 20, 2009

Slowly but surely, Prime Tower, will be the highest tower in Switzerland, goes up and up day by day. The columns tilted at the middle height, where you see the plan changes. Though rigid and massive, the building volume has various facets which render a variety of perspectives and reflections.

Here, green glass curtain walls are installed..  It’ll be all green like this.

Smaller formwork (even polygonal) on the top is for building core, and the lower yellow one is to cast posts and slabs. Looks very slim and elegant.. Seen from the city center, Höngg, the hills, can be seen high on the back. So you don’t feel the tower is scraping sky.
