MALMÖ:Turning Torso

It was a time ago that I took pictures of Turning Torso(the
weather has not been so good). But since the facade is almost
completed and the building has reached its full height -190 m(and
the weather was ok) I decided to go to Västra Hamnen and take
some new shots from the construction site.












Close ups of Turning Torso.Building material is going
up with cranes. Very cool to see in reality!


Note these windows. They will soon be part of this famous building!


These Västra Hamnen residences are just next Turning Torso.




The new Västra Hamnen skyline seen from the long local beach Ribersborg.
Note that TT mirrors in the water.



Bonus: Turning Torso/Malmö skyline seen from the roof of the Lidl store
next to where I live.

i just dont like this building, sorry everyone but it really isnt good looking, it looks distorted and misshapen rather than a clean twist. Would be a lot better with a nice glass facade, instead of this white covering with small-looking windows.

The whole area is under construction, but nothing with more than 6 floors though. The buildings in the front are all finished. A large parking garage is also u/c, especially for Turning Torso's residents. They will build a moat around it.

Please don't merge the thread since I want it to be an own thread, at least until it die and many people don't look in the European section.

I have recently heard that they will build a moat around the whole building.

@Atlantica C5. I know, but I wanted these pictures to be commented independently. )
