Twisting Tower for Toronto
The MAD Architectural Design Studio, based in Beijing, has won a contest for the right to build a 50-story condominium tower in a western suburb of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. They were chosen based on the integrity of their design, judged by a panel of architects, urban planners and design experts, as well as on a popular vote from some 6,000 of the city's residents.
The twisting tower, which will be of the most fantastic looking buildings in Canada, will cost approximately $114 million to complete and will be made from glass and concrete. The project is scheduled to be complete by 2010, at which point MAD hopes to add an additional four towers to the area.
