Photographer's Note

I will scan maybe something more from my South American trip, but for a break now something in a bookmark format. I am not a special fan of high scrapers but I was fascinated by this tower in Dubai marina.
Cayan Tower, known as Infinity Tower before it was inaugurated, is a 306-metre-tall, 75-story skyscraper. Upon its opening on 10 June 2013, the tower became world's tallest high-rise building with a twist of 90 degrees. This record has since been surpassed by the Shanghai Tower, which opened in February 2015.
The twisting design of Cayan Tower was achieved by rotating each floor 1.2 degrees around a cylindrical elevator and service core. (Wikipedia)

I wonder how the flats look like inside.

More standard views of Cayan and its colleagues:
