HSB Turning Torso, Malmo

#4 of 110 in Things to do in Malmo
Resembling the famous Cayan Tower in Dubai, HSB Turning Torso represents the tallest building in Scandanavia and dominates the skyline. Santiago Calatrava designed this futuristic skyscraper, which was completed in 2005, based on his renowned sculpture of a twisting human body. Only two floors are available for public viewing, so scheduling a tour can be a challenge. Photograph its famous figure and explore the architectural detail of the building. When you're finished, you can stroll through the neighborhood; most visitors take time to see the nearby farmers' market. Later you can use the tower as a reference point to navigate the city.

  • On my visit to Sweden, I went through Lund and Malmö. In Malmö, there are many things to do, but I'll try that in another post. I focus on this case, on the Turning Torso building. The truth is that it is avant-garde, innovative and futuristic, however, living so close to Benidorm (the Manhattan of the Mediterranean), its 190 meters do not surprise me as I am accustomed to see skyscrapers. However, I have to admit, that the building not only stands out as the tallest building in Scandinavia, but what is really spectacular is how it revolves from its Base, towards its vertex (hence its name Turning Torso). From below, you get the feeling that the interior is lopsided, so you pretend to imagine that there will be no horizontality, but of course, is the optical effect sought by its creator and designer, who is not other than the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava. The building is very close to the Malmö Marina, and the "European Zone", a self-sustaining place. It's great to be able to take a picture being close and from various positions, but little more, since you can't visit it as a residential building. Jesus.

  • But it is not possible to visit it and enjoy the view, on this new neighborhood, and on the port transformations

  • A landmark, a one-off and a pleasure to visit. We’d hired the top floor for lunch and a meeting and it was like being on a flying yacht. Incredible views and tasteful decor. We were there on a very windy day and you could feel the movement.
  • The structure is amazing to look at. For photography lovers, you will love taking picd from its different angles/ sides, the perspectives change on each corner. Great architectural work
