Turning Torso (torso en giro) es una torre residencial de 190 metros de altura y 54 plantas situado en la ciudad sueca de Malmö. Es el edificio residencial más alto de Suecia y el segundo de Europa (en la fecha de su inauguración), obra del arquitecto español Santiago Calatrava.

Fue inaugurado el 27 de agosto de 2005, después de cuatro años de construcción. Ha recibido el premio MIPIM en la feria de la construcción de Cannes (Francia) de 2005 al mejor edificio residencial del mundo.


Situada en el puerto Oeste de Malmö, cerca del puente sobre el estrecho de Oresund, que une Suecia con Dinamarca, esta torre, inspirada en una escultura que representa un torso humano, del propio Calatrava, se retuerce sobre sí misma dando un giro de 90 grados desde la base hasta la planta más alta. E

l edificio, construido en acero, vidrio y hormigón armado, se estructura en nueve cubos rotatorios cuyo principal elemento estructural es un núcleo de hormigón armado, de 10′6 metros de diámetro (a modo de columna vertebral).

Su centro se corresponde exactamente con el eje de rotación de las plantas. El exterior del edificio está revestido por paneles de cristal y aluminio. Cada uno de los cubos tiene seis plantas.


En el edificio coexisten viviendas de lujo y oficinas. Las oficinas se sitúan en los dos primeros cubos, con una superficie total de 4.000 metros cuadrados. Los cubos tres a nueve albergan 147 viviendas cuya superficie varía entre los 45 y los 190 metros cuadrados.

Las dos últimas plantas (desde las que se puede ver Copenhague) están dedicadas a reuniones de negocios, encuentros políticos y visitas oficiales. Turning Torso es un ejemplo de la “arquitectura viva” de Calatrava, en la que la anatomía y la naturaleza son las fuentes de inspiración del arquitecto.

I hardly leave a response, but i did a few searching and wound up here "TURNING TORSO (TORSO EN GIRO)".
And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I think that what you posted made a bunch of sense. But,
what about this? suppose you added a little content?
I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title that grabbed a person's
attention? I mean "TURNING TORSO (TORSO EN GIRO)" is kinda vanilla.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab people excited about everything've written.
In my opinion, it would bring your website a
little livelier.
