>> BEAUTY CONTEST - THE TWISTED TOWER

contemax

For some reason, twisted tower is becoming very popular in architecture in recent years, from SOM's early version of the Freedom Tower, to Calatrava's Melmö in Sweden.WTC from FOA, Asymptote, CCTV, MAD,Hadid... H&dM's new Roche Tower in Basel takes an asymmetrical approach which is quite interesting...

This is a BEAUTY CONTEST:




post your favorit Twisted Tower (or the worst ever)
and be the judge - dividing them in masterpieces and ugly mutants (there are some of them)

Calatrava's 80 South Street Tower, New York. Not really twisted, but interesting.
