Facts, informations and history of HSB Turning Torso

This building in the shape of a twisted male torso has 54 floors and 190 meters high.

The building consists of 9 five-story cubes twisted to the left the higher. The top of the top segment is twisted by 90% compared to the lowest.

In the two lowest segments there are offices, segments from 3 to 9 are 149 luxury apartments with areas ranging from 45 to 230 square meters.

There are 5 lifts installed in the building, 3 for residents in the building and 2 for workers. All elevators move vertically upwards along the central core, not like a tower in a winding line.

25,000 cubic meters of cement were used for construction.

Fire protection: each room has a system of water sprinklers on the ceiling, and its own emergency power supply and a separate water tank. One of the elevators also has its own power supply used in the event of evacuation.

The building was designed to resist the winds. Its tip deviation with a wind reaching 44 meters per second is just 30 centimeters and is almost unnoticeable.

Santiago Calatrava skyscraper designer made a similar project for Chicago, called Fordham Spire, will be 610 meters high, and will be completed in 2009. Another project Infinity Tower modeled also on Turning Torso will be built in Dubai in 2009.

In 2005, Turning Torso was awarded the best building in the Emporis Skyscraper Award competition.

Podobno obok ma w najbliższym czasie powstać coś jeszcze bardziej dziwnego :), wokół jest jeden wielki plac budowy, wszystko pięknie, tylko tam ciągle wieje i wieje, apartamenty cudowne ale tylko dla wybrańców ... :), to jest najbardziej zakręcony budynek w Europie, naprawdę robi wrażenie :).

Chciałabym w przyszłości popracować nad taką konstrukcją. bByłoby to dla mnie spełnienie inspiracji zawodowych. Pozazdrościć konstruktorom którzy mieli przyjemność" bawienia" sie nad taką konstrukcją
