Description
• Architect: Arquitectonica.

• Client & Constructor: WTorre
(Walter Torres Empreendimentos).
___________________________________________________________

• While The Architect made an huge project to WTorre at Marginal Pinheiros (Ex-Eletropaulo Headquarters structure and its buildings site with Shopping Center Iguatemi Extension with commercial and hotel towers atop), company made this as an exercise for WTorre only, with not construction intentions. It was only an Arquitectonica Vision or Fantasy idea, divulgated in its magazine, but afterwards removed. Just a rendering exercise of volume.

• Maybe in terms of built to suit system, these Green Tower would use rain renovation water among top electronic technologies, sharing many floors with other companies.

• This tower project was replaced to another project already being built in Rio de Janeiro city http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=79788, 4 smaller glassy towers between 16 and 25 floors only. Rio de Janeiro is chosen, because the proximity to sea with huge operations of offshore oil platforms and ships already in city with another building center http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=16480 and closer to shipyards where those vessels are constructed and repaired. Sao Paulo city, although an important financial centre, does not have the same coast business operations and proximity to sea.
