A new curvy skyscraper envisioned for Tel Aviv aims to be a lush oasis that combines modern, sustainable living with plenty of nature. The skyscraper is filled with Mediterranean and Dead Sea flora and features an automated car park, farms, electric charging stations and public gardens. The mixed-use Gran Mediterraneo tower, designed by French architect David Tajchman, is wrapped in mirrored glass and white concrete conceived using the latest construction and digital technologies.
Gran Mediterraneo combines different programs, including apartments, a hotel, an automated car park, public charging station, farming and public gardens, co-working spaces and spas. The automated public car park will operate as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city.
The tower aims to renew the Tel Aviv skyline with its ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical form, generated using state-of-the-art digital tools. “Innovative with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass,” said Tajchman.
