With the Norra Tornen high-rise in Stockholm, OMA invoke the fascination with the future inherent in the Modern. The exterior may appear to be a provocation, but the apartments within are surprisingly homey.
Location: Torsplan 8, 113 65 Stockholm (SE)
Our Favourites: Three high-rising buildings by OMA
First there is »La Torre« for the Fondazione Prada, situated on Largo Isarco in Milan, then we have the residential tower »Norra Tornen«, which is in the Swedish Capital Stockholm, and finally the first work by Rem Koolhaas, an exhibition tower in Paris.
A Beacon for Art: The new tower by OMA at Fondazione Prada
