very cool building. It would fit more in Stockholm though. It is very ugly to see one tall stick among the woods.

I actually like the building standing alone.It looks more monumental and unique without a neighbor overshadowing it.

Well,Eiffel Tower looks naked too and I guess nobody wants to build a cluster of towers around it.

This building is at least a reason to stop for passing tourists, and for some maybe even a reason to change their route just to see it.

rayman,

Malmö is the only city in Sweden which has the "guts" to build a tower like this. It is and will always be one of the most innovative and unique skyscrapers in Europe. I'm so proud of it. Maybe the tower helps the skyscraper-construction to boom in Sweden, and then maybe Stockholm can get a nice building too.

I guess rayman is right. Why not build a big cluster of 120m screw-towers around it. Lets say 7 towers in a ring

yeah its nice that malmö got the guts compare to my hometown (Stockholm) which are afriad to build high buildings and makes Stockholm looks like a nice little town with church towers instead of a modern city.
I hope so too that Sthlm will get more tall buildings but now it doesnt look bright. Anyway I still think it looks silly and ugly to have only 1 tall tower among a bunch of 2 storey apartments. If they build at least 4-5 tall towers around then we are talking.

As lofgren wrote, I think this building is more of a sculpture/art than regular scrapers, and comparable to the Eiffel Tower etc. And who thinks that a cluster of scrapers should be built around the Eiffel Tower?

For your information, there is one highrise hotell and another skyscraper planned in Västra Hamnen, and Kronprinsen (80 m) isn't far from TT either.

turning torso and the eiffel tower is a totally different matter.
Turning Torso is a highrise apartment. Eiffel tower is a tourist attraction.
