Walter Towers : The Power of the W

Walter Towers : The Power of the W

I remember visiting Prague four years ago and the thing I loved the most, was their building architecture. Everything lined up together, the life and the people where certain things for which I’d visit it again. But I guess I have a new reason this time. Not sure if that’s a skyscraper or some sorts of whyscraper, but I do know that the Walter Towers will soon be famous for their twirled and splayed looks. The giant undulating W.

Designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group’s, the Walter Towers look stunning even though I wouldn’t buy an apartment in such a building. Would the elevator be straight or a ride with it turns into a terrifying experience? Is such a building safe, most likely yes, but would you live in an upside down McDonald’s logo building? – via Dezeen

    I would like to see this in person. I am not sure I would like to spend to much time inside this building. Just how strong is the structure.

    I think this building is a sweet piece of architecture. concerning the elevator id say that it would run straight up the building although the building would be curved…. so like the building revolves around the straight vertical foundation of the elevator tunnel.

    The elevator goes straight up. If looking at a particular side, viewing the curviture upwards, the elevator shaft would start at say the left side and run straight up ending on the right side.
