Emporis Skyscraper Award 2005

Turning Torso chosen as best new skyscraper

The sixth annual Emporis Skyscraper Award goes to Turning Torso, a twisting skyscraper designed by Santiago Calatrava in Malmö, Sweden. Turning Torso is the tallest building in Scandinavia. At 190 meters it is the tallest residential building west of Moscow in Europe. Turning Torso was chosen by an overwhelming majority of votes on the Emporis Award Jury. Members of the jury called it "highly adventurous and innovative", "the epitome of structural expressionism", and "the result of enlightened and adventurous patronage", noting that it "looks different from almost every angle".
