This building is designed by the prestigious architect from Barcelona Enric Miralles and by Benedetta Tagliabue, who won the call for ideas for the Gas Natural Group's new head office. The proposal by the EMBT studio is characterised by a spectacular 20-storey glass tower which, given its sinuous, modern architecture has already become a landmark on the skyline of Barcelona.
A horizontal building projects out of the tower between the 5th and 10th storeys, lending the building a strong personality and which from an architectural point of view enables the skyscraper to integrate into the entire complex and the surrounding city.
Kunsthaus - Graz (Graz Art Museum) was built as part of the European Capital of Culture celebrations in 2003 and has since become an architectural landmark in Graz, Austria.
Its unusual architecture differs radically from conventional buildings, many of which maintain the traditions of the modernist "White Cube". The team of architects used an innovative stylistic idiom, known as blob architecture within the historical ambiance of the "Murvorstadt". Thus, the gigantic building called the "Friendly Alien" by its creators Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, in form and material, stands out against the surrounding baroque roof landscape with its red clay roofing tiles but nevertheless integrates the façade of the 1847 iron house.
The picture was taken from the castle mountain ("Burgberg").
The relatively new Malmo landmark - never seen anything quite like it. It is designed by Santiago Calatrava and is the tallest residential building in Sweden at 190 m (in case you were interested)
