10 Most Unusual Buildings in the World

  

2. Twisting Torso, Malmö, Sweden

Standing at 623 feet, 190 metres, the Twisting Torso was completed in 2005. A sculpture inspired architect Santiago Calatrava who designed the building to look twisted like rope. There are nine segments of pentagons that span five stories each, placed offset on top of each other to create a twisting effect. There are 54 stories in all. The segment on the top is set ninety degrees clockwise in relationship to the one on the very bottom.
