American firm SOM has coupled with Danish studio Entasis to design an epic skyscraper, titled the 'Polestar Tower,' for the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. The proposal features a design that will reach 230 meters high, more than twice as high as the city's current tallest building, the 100-meter Gothia New Tower.
Beyond the height, the design plan draws inspiration from "ribbons blowing in the wind," featuring a fluid, twisting design. The tower, which will be residential in function, will serve as the focal point amongst an assemblage of mid-rise buildings.
Beyond the single-storey flats and duplexes, the building will also accommodate a gym, residents' lounge, garden, rooftop observation deck and a restaurant that's open to the general public.
