In England we have the twisted spire of Chesterfield church, buckled after building in middle ages

If the Fordham Spire is completed, then that would be more famous than The Turning Torso.

The Fordham Spire is grossly overrated.

Anyway, most of the Ripley's believe it or not museums are actually cuved and twisted, distorted.

And there are 89 billion twisty buildings coming down the tubes, so there will
be plenty to choose from. Not my favourite building style,as it reminds me
of how cool PoMo looked at first, and how dated it looked shortly thereafter. But I LOVED that twisted spire in Chesterfield!!!
