Abstract:
Torre Reforma, a 57-story mixed-use building, is a new addition to the skyline of Mexico City, Mexico. The building is triangular in plan with elevators and egress stairways contained in the apex of the triangle and long-span pyramidal floor trusses. The trusses conceal plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems, and allow for maximum ceiling heights and a column-free interior, facilitating unobstructed views over the city from every-level.
