Great idea for a thread, I was meaning to start one myself.

Baroque Apartments, Brisbane
49s/169m
This is by far the coolest example I've seen, unfortunately it was cancelled (although the 246m Vision is now going on the site)

Living in an apartment like that would just feel awkward.

I'm already sick of the twisting fad. I find it pointless. The only thing the design is good for is wind resistance.

Everything is twisting these days. I think Malmo's Turning Torso will be a big example for future skyscrapers

Twisting scrapers:
Lotte Tower


Fordham Spire



North Bund Tower, Shanghai

Vancouver's twisting tower will be the city's second tallest tower at 55 stories. It is already approved and should begin construction in 2006:

I'm surprised the mother of all twisting scrapers hasn't been posted yet.
