Norman Foster wants to plant a ‘tulip’ of 305 meters in London

A tulip of 305,3 meters. Architect Norman Foster has planted in the City of London the seed of this project and the plan is that, like the flower that inspired its design, the building will grow to become the tallest in the financial district of the city. It would measure, in particular, just one meter more than the Undershaft, another skyscraper that aspires to touch up the landscape of London, very near where it is planned that the emergence of the tulip of Foster, as has already been christened the structure. The proposal of the study Foster + Partners already has the official go-ahead for the building and with a funder: the group brazilian Safra, controlled by the banker of that country Joseph Safra. For the moment, has not transcended its cost, according to collect british media, who consider it one of the architectural projects, most bizarre and most relevant the last few years in London.

The tulip is intended to also be placed just to the side and complement the 30 St Mary Axe known as the Gherkin (baby cucumber), another skyscraper that Foster and his studio designed in London, and that the Safra ended up acquiring in 2014. “The tulip is consistent with the spirit of London, a progressive city, forward-looking,” said the architect. The building will not be in any case the highest of the city: it exceeds by about five meters, the Shard. It is expected that the tulip welcome bars, restaurants, educational projects, and an elevator (lift) transparent.
