Peter - this is really an amazing structure and you have done it great justice in capturing it twice at different angles. Well done! Beautiful.

Warm greetings, Hazel

...in den Himmel einschrauben - Was für eine grpßartige Konstruktion! Ich bin begeistert Peter! Das Blau des Himmels verstärkt die futuristische Architektur! lol mir wird direkt ein bisschen schwindlig !

BoYS - liebe Grüße, Ellen

Well, well,

Another building that looks a bit like my sculptures....

I guess that's why I love architecture like that...changing from each angle you look at it...

Nice capture(s), by the way!

Gtz, Patricia

Hazel Thank you so much indeed for your nice words..:))) warm wishes, Peter

Liebe Ellen danke dir so sehr für dein Lob und ganz besonders das Y* und BO

Patricia yes really the story behind this building is that representatives from Malmö City paid a visit to the spanish architect, sculptor and structural engineer Santiago Calatrava. At his office they noticed his scupture Twisting Torso..and asked him to construct a building based on this sculpture. Actually he was not normally into drawing such type of buildings... But now it stands there to see how a sculpture based on the human torso has developed into Europes second tallest house for living....A little bit like a fairy tale. Best wishes, Peter

Thank you so much John best wishes, Peter

thor☼odin™ Amazing picture and amazing building, rather a piece of art than a house! Modern architecture sometimes looks as if it had been created in an instant, doesn't it? Love it, Y*. All the best, Maja
