The Absolute Towers – “best new high-rise buildings in the Americas/2012”

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has honoured MISSISSAUGA’s Absolute Towers (50 and 56 storeys) as “the best new high-rise buildings in the Americas/2012”.  The Towers (nicknamed Marilyn, after curvaceous Marilyn Monroe) are located near TORONTO’s western border, easily recognizable on the Mississaugan skyline.

The architect: Ma Yansong, MAD Architects, Beijing.

The CTBUH Award Committee noted, “There have been several curvaceous towers completed in recent years – some using balconies to achieve the free-form edge and others using the whole façade. With Absolute we see the entire building twisting to achieve the organic form, creating a beautiful new landmark for a developing urban area.”
