Marilyn Monroe Towers in Mississauga Awarded World's Best Skyscraper of 2012


Forget about Singapore and New York City — the world’s best new skyscraper is located in Canada.


Emporis, a database of construction projects, has named the Absolute World Towers in Mississauga, Canada, the best new skyscraper of 2012.

 


The two twisting towers were built by MAD Ltd and Burka Architects, and selected by an international jury of experts from over 300 skyscrapers at least 100 meters tall completed last year.


The Absolute World Towers were chosen for their aesthetic beauty. Nicknamed “Marilyn Monroe” for their curving shape, no two floors in the towers are exactly the same.


In fourth place, is Calgary’s The Bow, home to energy companies Encana and Cenovus. Called the Bow River, this 770-foot-tall skyscraper is the third-tallest in Canada. It’s also 30% lighter than other buildings of its size thanks to the architects’ innovative use of steel and glass.


Also making the list this year were skyscrapers from Abu Dhabi and Qatar. 11 buildings made the Emporis list in total, with three of the new buildings tied at number nine on the ranking.
