Bicentennial Tower

Mexico City

Mexico commemorated both, the bicentennial of its Independence and the centennial of its Revolution in 2010. To celebrate this milestone, a tower was to be erected in the area surrounding Chapultepec Park in Mexico City. It was meant to become an icon, the tallest building in Latin America, offering the city and nation a symbol to remember the bicentennial celebrations and an important new element in the city’s urban life. Rem Koolhaas (OMA) was chosen to design the tower and FR-EE was invited to act as local partners, participating in the design process as well. Torre Bicentenario was to provide top-class office space for Mexico City with public amenities such as a sky lobby, convention center, shops, and restaurants for the surrounding communities and visitors to Chapultepec Park.
