High Rise Living In Toronto: Part 4

The Absolute World condominium towers located in Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, have been making headlines.

The recent recipient of the annual Emporis Skyscraper Award beat out more than 300 entries to gain the title of the best in high-rise architecture of 2012.

Designed by MAD Ltd. And Burka Architects, the buildings have been renamed by area residents as the Marilyn Monroe towers for the captivating curves of the buildings.

Trying to make a shift from the stark structures of current high-rise living, the condominiums twist organically by up to eight degrees per floor, held as a “superb technical achievement”.

It has been noted that due to the design of the towers no two floors are the same, offering unique views and layouts for each tenant.

The buildings, reaching 50 and 56 storeys, were originally planned as a single structure, but overwhelming response to the initial design led developers to add the second.
