Turning Torso

Calatrava

 

At 190 metres, Turning Torso is the tallest building in Sweden. The building was inspired by a sculpture "Twisting Torso" by Santiago Calatrava . Turning Torso consists of nine cubes with a total of 54 stories, with a 90° twist from base to top.

 

During a few weeks in summer the building is opened for public. We were just one day too early....:-(
