Thread: The Twisted Tower

  1. #1

    The Twisted Tower

    The Twisted Tower, also known as the “Turning Torso” tower, built by the Swedish housing association HSB counts as one of Sweden’s most debated construction projects. During the spring, the building won a prestigious award at a property-industry trade fair in Cannes.

    Providing a clear landmark in Sweden’s third-largest city, the Turning Torso stands proud on the shore of the Öresund Straits. Its height is almost overwhelming, as is the gleaming white façade and the twisted form. The building can actually be seen all the way from Helsingborg, 50 kilometers from Malmö.

    With its 54 stories, the Turning Torso is no normal apartment block. In 1996, the Spanish sculptor and architect Santiago Calatrava created a design he called the Twisting Torso – a twisting human form consisting of a number of cubes.
