This twisted tower was designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and is set to rise up, adjacent to an invisible highway, in Vancouver, Canada. The design is stunning and quite genius, as the building twists away from the highway so that none of the windows overlook the busy expressway. The 49-storey building will have apartments on top, with office, shops and restaurants in the lower nine floors.

Winning the Future Project of the Year 2015 award at the World Architecture Festival, this twisted tower cleverly allows people living in a busy urban setting to avoid the ugly views they don't want to see. The BIG architects won this prestigious award because of the positive impact this design will have on municipality planning of the future.
