The shape represents

— Santiago Calatrava, Architect

Quote on the inspiration of nature in the imagination and design of The Chicago Spire, a 150-story building due for completion in 2011. A reminder of the importance of form and function in nature and the interaction of the human body with gravity and nature in physical conditioning. Calatrava’s entry into high-rise design began with an innovative 54-story twisting tower, known as the Turning Torso (completed 2005), located in Malmö, Sweden.

I am always trying to learn from nature.
