So it will not be windows between the cubes like I suspected earlier. Good, it is better design with these gaps! I have to go out there and take more pics for my website next time the weather is good.

what is the purpose of the big white cylinder on the roof? is it the bit that houses the elevator mechanics? it'd be cool if they lit that part at night.

deep_sea_buildings,

Yes. The cylinder goes from the bottom all the way towards the top of the building. It will (and probalby is right now) be visible in the gaps between the cubes. Before it looked a little strange with cylinder on the top, but now it makes sense since it is visible through all of the building. I hope it is gonna be lit up.

They seem to be the 'in' thing at the moment don't they? I quite like them, they look really impressive....Almost as if they shouldn't be possible.

Malmo is a nice location IMO.

I think it's height and the mass-form is not very dominant (complication is out of the question) yet it's whiteness might blends it so well in the skyline and can be easily dissappeared in some dense city like New York or Hongkong.

The reason for its location is to attract fashionistas to Malmo .. and hopefully, will attract other companies and build skyscrapers to make a skyline so for them, TT sorta like a gateway to job oppurtunities
