Just came from visiting the Mahanakohn project in Bangkok. What an amazing creation.

MahaNakhon – a visionary new 77-story high-rise complex located on a 3.6 acre site in the heart of Bangkok’s Central Business District. The design for MahaNakhon dismantles the typical tower and podium typology to render not a tower in isolation but instead a skyscraper that melds with the city by gradually ‘dissolving’ the mass as it moves vertically between ground and sky. The Mahanakohn’s estimated date of completion is 2015 and it will be Bangkok tallest building.
