The girls are feeling blue. Mississauga's twisted sisters. Completed in 2012. Design by MAD Architects.

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Two voluptuous girls. The architect must have been dreaming about his girlfriend(s), when he got this idea. Everybody calls it Marilyn (Monroe) towers, but it is actually called Absolute towers . The tower twists 209 degrees from the base to the top. Designed by Beijing architect, Ma Yansong, and his firm, MAD Architects.


The taller tower is 170 meters and 56 stories. Second is 150 m/50 stories. I got there just about around blue hour, so that's why the girls look a bit sad.


I just do not go much to this area. It took me 4 years to come back with a camera, but you can see old photo of the same building, still under construction [uploaded in Sept 2010.]

LF for this most interesting picture. Well I could not imagine something similar in Ljubljana but it must be certainly an experience to live in.

Best regards

30 years ago they could not imagine it in Mississauga.

I know, it is not cheap place, but not crazy expensive either! About $260,000 -1 bedroom $320,000 - 2 bedroom apartment.
