The New York-based firm Studio Libeskind has released images of three structures that they plan for the Tor di Valle area of Rome

To be located in the heart of the newly designed business park, the three towers seem to be in conversation with each other. The volumetric structures mimic building blocks or Tetris pieces and appear to be cut from one large stone. All the buildings stand in a triangular formation above the 3000 sq-m piazza which includes gardens and reflective pools.

Each structure will have a unique profile providing for individuality among the trio

With the largest tower standing at 220 m, each is clad in opaque paneling and incorporates internal garden zones and multi-level areas as work spaces.Full-grown trees will be planted in the vast atrium-like spaces to bring nature indoors and reflect the sweeping views available of the city.

It is envisioned that the inside of each tower will house living trees and expansive multi-level work and social areas
