The «Turning Torso« project has been awarded a commendation for its exceptional sculptural qualities. With its symbolic appearance, styled down to the smallest details, the tower points the way to a new formal wealth in high-rise construction that does without any superficial decoration. This edifice really catches the eye for its elegance, consistency and perfection. And the sculptural effect asserts itself in the face of other aspects of high-rise construction, such as urban planning, spatial qualities, ecology and meaningful structure.
