“Stararchitect” Libeskind chooses the innovation by Italcementi

Italcementi Group’s innovative products have been chosen for the construction of Magnet, a large residential centre of roughly 800 apartments, designed by the famous architect Daniel Libeskind, who has signed such world-renowned projects as the master plan for the World Trade Center in New York, the Jewish Museum Berlin and the Fiera Milano. For this very original neighborhood, that is currently under development near the city center of Tirana in Albania and is composed of two towers and smaller buildings surrounded by several park areas and common spaces, i.active coat and i.idro drain will be used.
The first edifice, “Eagle in flight”, has already been finished and will be inaugurated in autumn. In a few days works for the second building, that is called “Orion”, will start.
The Group researchers are now working on some coloured versions of i.active COAT, since the architect would like to distinguish each structure with a different colour.

This important partnership with STUDIO Libeskind and KONTAKT, the Albanian company in charge of the construction works, has brought to another important result: the same products are being used to build ANA, another residential complex in Tirana. In this case the project has been signed by the International Architecture Studio CITYFOERSTER based in Rotterdam (Netherlands) and includes four buildings with very comfortable apartments, open and commercial spaces, parking and storage solutions.
