Acclaimed US architect Richard Meier has revealed his practice’s most recent work in Mexico City, the 34-storey Mitikah Office Tower.

Meier & Partners’ third project in Mexico will be part of mixed-use masterplan by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by IDEURBAN/IDCity.

The overall scheme consists of commercial space, low-rise residential buildings, and a hotel and residential tower.

Located at the southwest corner of the masterplan, Meier’s tower rises above a transparent building base.

The south and east facades are composed of a continuous high-performance curtain wall modulated by subtle folds.

The north and west elevations are composed by a curtain wall system with modular and orthogonal expressions that reference the proportions of the surrounding context.

It also contains a sky garden with an integrated conference pavilion on the 19th floor, and a restaurant and sky-bar on the 34th floor.

Design partner-in-charge Bernhard Karpf comments: “Mexico City has always been among the most important cultural and commercial centers in Latin America.

“The new tower will undoubtedly contribute visual significance to the skyline of the city and to the neighbourhood. The design is inspired by a modern interpretation of Aztec forms.”
