I remember seeing sketches of the Turning Torso on a skyscraper blog when construction started in 2001. The unique design and claim as tallest building in Scandinavia generated a lot of interest. So when I travelled to Malmö, Sweden, this tower was on the top of my sightseeing list. The building was completed in 2005 and is 190 m / 623 ft tall. Many buildings are given artsy or inspiring names, but this one really fits. The building looks almost as if it is in motion, or stretching.
