Swedish skyscraper with a 90° twist.
Turning Torso is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden, and the second highest residential building in Europe. Situated in Malmö, Sweden the tower reaches a height of 623 feet making it the tallest building in the Nordic countries. However, what sets this skyscraper apart is not its height, but the a 90° twist that makes the building look like an optical illusion.
Since Turning Torso is a residential building, it is only open to the public briefly in the summer months, when visitors can ascend the tower for an incredible view across Malmö.
