AIA Film Night: The Socialist, The Architect and The Twisted Tower


The film will be preceded by a short introduction. 

This is a dramatic, behind-the-scene-story about the building of Santiago Calatrava’s ‘Turning Torso’ in Malmö, a 190 meter high, twisted residential building which was appointed “worlds best residential building project” at

Mipim in Cannes, 2005.

Filmmaker Fredrik Gertten documents the construction of the visionary Turning Torso public housing structure. In 1999 Johnny Örbäck saw celebrated architect Santiago Calatrava’s “Teisting Torso” sculpture and immediately knew what he wanted for the construction of a proposed residential building. Determined to

construct a skyscraper based on the same concept, Örbäck contacted Calatrava and convinced him to design the building. This documentary highlights the difficulty in seeing such an ambitious project through to completion.
