Neo-Futurism in Sweden

By Linda Tancs

Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö is quite literally a city of twists and turns. That’s where you’ll find the Turning Torso, a neo-futurist residential skyscraper giving a twist to the cityscape in the Western Harbour. The tallest building in Scandinavia, it rises to 623 feet and comprises nine cubes with a total of 54 stories, topped off with a 90-degree twist from base to top.

Malmö is Sweden’s third largest city but amazingly retains a very small town feel, no doubt helped by the easy reach of its beaches, shops, restaurants and museums.
