DC Towers 1 & 2  DC Towers 1 & 2 2  dc tower 1

Design Architect: Dominique Perrault Architecture
Architect of Record: Hoffmann & Janz Architectes
Architectural Engineer: Perrault Projets
Structural Engineer: Bollinger & Grohmann, Gmeiner Haferl Zivilingenieure ZT GmbH

AE Interest: elevated slab of the Donau-City is continued; large terrace provides direct access to the Neue Donau river; two towers are treated as two halves of a block; folds in the facade appear malleable making the building look liquid in some lights

Notes: Construction of Tower I (60 stories) was complete in 2013 and Tower II (44 stories) should begin soon; tallest towers in Austria
