How thin can a skyscraper be?

After the 432 Park Avenue, built in 2015 by Rafael Viñoly Architects, which with its base/height ratio of 1:15 has amazed the world and represents a recognizable landmark from every point of the mythical New York – recently, another skyscraper has been revealed and once again it is surprising for its thinness.

This is the tallest skyscraper that will rise in Canada by the Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron – that Milan knows closely thanks to the beautiful Feltrinelli Foundation.

It will reach 324 meters in height, well below the tallest building in the world (over 800 meters), but thanks to its narrowness it will still be able to get noticed.
