So which is better?

The original in 190m twisting tower in Malmo, Sweden, opened in 2005, or Infinity in Dubai?

Don't be fooled by the cladding.... the windows on the inside are pretty weird and very oddly shaped. It seems the architect sacrificed window shapes, sizes and natural light for the sake of an average looking exterior facade.

When you get to go inside the tower, you will see what I mean

There are many things going on at the top of the tower too, but can only be captured by zooming in from a very big distance.
