MAKE GETS IN A TWIST

NEWS IN PICTURES

MAKE Architects has unveiled these images of its proposals for a 35-storey skyscraper in Hong Kong. If the tower wins planning permission it will join a number of high-rise schemes springing up west of the old Hong Kong airport, where building height used to be restricted to just 11 storeys due to low flight paths. Mirroring the shape of the Zantedeschia lily, the 150m-tall mixed-use residential and leisure building will wrap around a central core and boast a series of 'spiralling' terraces. Project architect Frank Filskow said: 'We want people in the apartments not to have to live completely inside all the time.' Each floor will contain only two flats - most with four bedrooms to accommodate extended families.
