THE SQUAIRE is a pioneering feat in structural engineering. For the first time ever, a building of this magnitude was raised on top of an ICE high-speed railway station, between two freeways, and on 86 columns. All of it without interrupting the traffic flow. Logistics are comparable to the construction of Øresund Bridge over the Baltic Sea.
THE SQUAIRE is an aesthetic flagship project: Notwithstanding its length of 660 meters and its weight of 350,000 tonnes, it looks agile, shimmering in the sunlight.
THE SQUAIRE is an architectural masterpiece: Built from the outside in, the office, hotel, retail and conferencing floor-space needs were easy to accommodate once the aerodynamic exterior was in place.
THE SQUAIRE is a city under one roof: Five atria form the central patios which are surrounded by restaurants, cafés and shops.
THE SQUAIRE is a ficticious name composed of "square" and "air".
THE SQUAIRE is an architectural icon of the 21st century. A place to be.
