Commenter thinks BIG's Calgary skyscraper has "more a wine bottle than feminine shape"



In this week's comments update, readers are discussing Danish architecture studio BIG's 222-metre-high Telus Sky Tower in Calgary and other top architecture and design stories.
The studio revealed photos of the skyscraper, which was completed in 2020, showing its twisted design that was created to signify the shift between the office and residential programs of the building.
BIG unveils Calgary skyscraper "composed to form a feminine silhouette"
"Architects don't half talk some twaddle"
Commenters were not convinced by BIG founder Bjarke Ingels's statement that the curving form "gives the tower a sense of femininity in the midst of a more masculine skyline".
"More wine bottle than feminine shape," joked Idracula. "Awkward might be a better description," he continued. Zea Newland thought that the tower looks like "their Vancouver skyscraper but upside down".
"Not the first time BIG has recycled designs from other projects by flipping or turning the massing, and it certainly won't be the last," responded Jacob Volinski.
"It's a nice building but architects don't half talk some twaddle," said Muckers270.
