Infinity Tower (330m. twisted 90˚)- Dubai ....{by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Construction of the 330 m (1,080 ft) building began in February 2006 and when completed it will have 73 stories and be the world's tallest high rise building with a twist of 90˚. The tower will twist similar to the Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden, and other recent projects in Doha and elsewhere, and will be the tallest in the world to do so. However, unlike the Turning Torso, which is a series of cantilevered plates rotated about a straight structure, Infinity Tower's much larger floor plates actually require the structure to be twisted as it raises from level to level. Each floor is rotated by 1.2˚ to achieve the full 90˚ spiral, creating the shape of a helix.
