They have a different areas of usage, but they are both still innovative and fantastic structures of their time, and shouldn't be blocked etc. by other towers.

I know that,but I meant that both structures are unique and monuments to their cities respectively.That's why I think other towers shouldn't de allowed close to TT because that would ruin its the majesty.Anyway,whether they build or not other towers,TT will always be a landmark for Sweden and Europe,but it won't have the same impact as it would have without neighbors.

Scince Malmö is such a small city the population of Malmö should be able to affect the city concil to build more highrises around it?

Parzival,

The population of Malmö couldn't do more than the Stockholm population could do in a matter like this. I wouldn't say no to build some scrapers near TT (which are actually going to be built + we already have Kronprinsen pretty close aswell), but I definately don't want to see other buildings blocking the Turning Torso.

Parzival,

You're right, there is actually a lot of empty land in Västra Hamnen. The problem is that nearly 100% of these grounds have been occupied for planned buildings already.

But have you seen the huge area on the backside of Turning Torso behind the industrial area close to the sea behind a fence? It is hard to reach from the city. Nothing is u/c there.

Beautiful design but typically for a solitairy tower. It's a landmark which cannot share its space with other towers.

All cranes have now been taken down from Turning Torso, and thereby the tower is completely finished on the outside.

I saw it today and I noticed it looked like the crane was gone now, but I wasn't completely sure.

My latest pic, taken spring 2005:


Remember how small it was 2 years ago:


I think I need to take som new pics.

Sorry for the bad quality, these pics are taken from a car window by a mobile phone (SE K750i), hence the somewhat discussable quality.



I will head out and take pics with my Nikon cam soon. The finished TT without the cranes looks absolutely stunning. I can not believe it actually.

Awesome tower.

Piss-awful location.

Why the hell is a work of art like this in the middle of nowhere?
