GATEWAY TO THE NEW MILAN
A high-rise hub worthy of Milan’s reputation for style has sprung up in a formerly neglected space in the heart of the city. It is arguably the most ambitious urban renewal project Italy has ever seen.
A SKYLINE REDEFINED
Piercing the sky like a shard of glass, The Shard is putting new punctuation to an already famous cityscape. Standing at 310 meters, this landmark building is the tallest in Western Europe.
LIFELINE OF MADRID
When a relationship lasts 15 years, the chemistry must be right. KONE’s partnership with Metro de Madrid assures a smooth ride for three million daily commuters in the Spanish capital.
122 Leadenhall is a building of world firsts, boasting the world’s largest and fastest suite of panoramic elevators. But the real stunner is the mold-breaking design – nothing comparable has ever been attempted before.
ALL UNDER ONE ROOF
With its practical central location in Europe, Vienna International Airport is an important hub for travelers heading to Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Through rapid growth, the airport has become a major driver of Austria’s economy.
TRUE TO CLUB COLORS
Shining like an emerald against the night sky, Budapest’s newest soccer stadium has a strong Go Green theme, which matches the club colors of its home team, Ferencvárosi Torna Club.
ARCHITECTURE WITH LIFE
Seven million visitors are expected to enter the spectacular arch of Rotterdam’s new indoor food market annually. A steady stream of fresh produce meanwhile is transported from the dispatch center located on the lower ground floor.
