I just watched a documentary about the construction of this insane building - the "Turning Torso" highrise in Malmö, Sweden.

[ipernity.com...]

I totally admire the construction, engineeering and architectural expertise. I just can't decide if I like it nor not ;)

I can't decide either. It doesn't really put me in mind of a turning torso, but I certainly appreciate any architect who chooses not to give the world yet another glass and concrete box.

I guess engineering is catching up to architects' more fantastical ideas. Another example is the "Marilyn Monroe [i-mad.com]" building currently going up in Canada.

And yeah, everything involved in getting these from the drawing board to concrete and steel must be admired. I like them for the aesthetics, though I do find them strangely disconcerting.

That is the epitome of "thinking outside the box".

Gorgeous building!
