Route des Jeunes - Carouge, Switzerland
Located on a very tight plot of the PAV (Praille-Acacias-Vernets project) which represents the South Gate to the neighborhood,the project proposes the developement and the creation of administrative spaces in this changing neighborhood. The tower has the particularity of having a very small footprintand a height of 100 m, giving the impression of a very slender glass monolith.
Large greenhouses are placed at the angles of the tower.They are distributed in an upward spiral movement accentuating the slenderness of the construction.These greenhouses provide cooling and natural ventilation for all administrative areas. Air filtration is done naturally by trees planted in these greenhouses whichopen up and dematerialize the volume of the "Trees tower."
