The Reforma Towers is a project designed by the architectural practice of Richard Meier & Partners in the Paseo de la Reforma historic neighborhood in Mexico City and it will be comprised of two high-rise towers clad in white concrete.

The development will spread over 40 floors and will have mixed uses containing high-end offices, retail spaces, a hotel, a fitness center and restaurants as well. Planned to be completed in 2015, the project will have a void in the center of the development which acts as an urban courtyard so that the natural light can be filtered and pass into the office modules.

The surface and volume of the structures tries to take advantage of the light and to offer a good overview of the city, reconfiguring the space to maximize transparency. According to the designers “every component has been carefully designed taking in consideration the public areas, the city and natural light”.
