The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has announced the Turning Torso in Malmö as this year’s winner of the 10 Year Award for worldwide best tall buildings.

The 10 Year Award recognizes completed tall buildings that have proven to be valuable to their cities and communities over a period of time. They are evaluated on different criteria, such as environmental, engineering performance, vertical transport, iconography and others.

This project will be featured in the CTBUH Best Tall Buildings Book and all awards winner and finalists will be celebrated at the CTBUH 14th Annual Awards Symposium that will take place at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, on November 12, 2015.

Completed in 2005 in Malmö’s redeveloped Western Harbour, the Turning Torso has become a local landmark and is still the tallest building in Scandinavia. It was designed by Spanish architect, engineer and artist Santiago Calatrava and was the first twisting skyscraper in the world.
