The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) recently released its new report, which features the tallest twisted buildings across the globe. According to the report, there are a total of 28 spiraling structures that are either completed or currently in the works as of July 2016. The CTBUH states that in order for a building to placed on the list, the structure must be one that “progressively rotates its floor plates or its façade as it gains height.” The first twisted skyscraper was the Turning Torso in Malmo, Sweden that was designed by Santiago Calatrava Architects & Engineers and completed in 2005. The tallest one is the Shanghai Tower in China at over 2,000 ft.
