Vietnam's newest and tallest addition, the MahaNakhon tower, was recently just completed in Bangkok's financial district. Standing at 1,030 feet, the 77-story tower features two series of spiral cuts, one at the top and the other in the middle, that looks as if some interior offices have been taken out and shifted to create a lateral pattern of dynamic voids. German architect Ole Scheeren, principal of Büro Ole Scheeren and former partner at OMA, hopes to challenge the typical shapes of skyscrapers, according to Curbed.
With a $620 million pricetag, the luxury 1.6 billion-square-foot building will house 200 Ritz Carlton apartments, in addition to a 150-room hotel, and 10,000 feet dedicated to retail, which will all be topped off with a rooftop bar. And for those with an appetite for fine epicurean products, it will also house a Dean & DeLuca.
