^ Thats a pretty damn nice.

Im skeptical of those balconies though...i have a balcony thats extended a bit more out then the top floors, and sometimes find some guy's belongings on my floor, including dropped cigarettes...im considering an awning (fireproof ofcourse).

Shall i be the delagate for the Malmo tower then?

Architecture at a higher level...

The Vortex is the name given to a huge and highly twisting tower designed by Ken Shuttleworth’s MAKE Places Ltd. If it is built according to current plans, it will be 300m (984ft) tall.
