Cayan Tower by Skidmore, Owings, Merrill in Dubai

"A studio head in our Chicago office snapped this photo of Cayan Tower piercing the clouds above Dubai. Designed by SOM, the supertall, twisting skyscraper is a pure expression of the relationship between the building’s form and the structural framework that supports it. Measuring 307 meters from base to top, the skyscraper is the tallest twisting tower in the world. It is also the only building to twist along its length, thanks to an innovative structural design that results in a full 90-degree rotation from its first to last floorplate."
