AGC Glass has provided 120,000 m2 of its highly transparent Planibel Clearvision glazing system for the Torre Allianz building in Milan. The prestigious Torre Allianz blends seamlessly into the urban jungle of Milan's historic centre, perfectly symbolising the area’s successful redevelopment.
The glass was fashioned into a series of distinctive convex modules, creating the illusion that the building is vibrating as it reaches up into the sky. AGC's highly transparent Planibel Clearvision creates an optimal working environment inside the tower, letting in maximum light and giving occupants a clear view of the neighbouring Alps.
Adding Stopray Vision-60T and iplus E to the mix ensures good solar control and thermal insulation respectively. The building's south-facing glass facade is silk-screen printed in white for additional protection from overheating.
