Turning Torso by Santiago Calatrava in Malmö Sweden

If there ever was a spine on a building, this is it. Designed to visually mimic a twisting torso, this building stands tall at 190 meters and is Sweden’s tallest skyscraper. It is a treat to see. This work located in Malmö, Sweden, and titled the “Turning Torso” by architect Santiago Calatrava towers over a neighborhood of three story condominiums and is a bit lonely by istelf. With no other building to juxtapose against, I had to use this lowly street lamp to complete the composition.
