MB Architects: The benefits of twisting towers go beyond aesthetics though. This type of design can make a building more aerodynamic and energy efficient. The twisting tower reduces wind-load by 24% (compared to a similarly sized rectangular building). Technological advances are allowing architects and builders to think and move well beyond traditional design models of skyscraper construction. Twisting towers are just another sign of the ongoing urban evolution of our times. Besides pointing optimistically toward exciting things to come, they remind us that the most beautiful or the most efficient line between two points is not always a straight one.
