ABSOLUTE Architectural Design Competition

Although slightly larger than most objects we feature on Inhabitat, this sensual skyscraper located west of Toronto was just too beautiful to pass up. Developers in Mississauga, Canada  recently announced the winner of the Absolute Design Ideas Competition  for a fifty-plus story residential tower. Although no sustainable measures have been announced for the building itself, this high density development will allow 1,800 families to live, work, and shop all within walking distance. Besting 90 other entries, the Beijing architecture firm of MAD won the commission to design this elegant $120 million structure. Already dubbed the “Marilyn Monroe building” by the press, this flagship structure is slated for completion in 2010.
