Photos of "Marilyn Monroe"

Absolute Towers near Square One in Mississauga, with a twisting profile that brings to mind a curvaceous Marilyn Monroe, are under construction.

Yansong Ma, founder of MAD Architectural Design Studio in Beijing, drew up the tower that beat out five other designs. It's the first international design competition held in Mississauga. The gentle spiral that sees the oval building twist almost 360 degrees from bottom to top won accolades from architecture critics around Toronto.

Due to overwhelming success of the first building, Fernbrook announced that a second 50 storey that is also now under construction. Unlike the South tower, which gets thinner in the middle as it rises, Absolute North will instead get larger in the middle, which has resulted in some members of the public calling them the "condo couple" with the South Tower being the sexy female and the northern tower being the masculine man.

The towers have also been referred to as Yansong Ma's version of Yin and Yang. The community is being created by Fernbrook Homes in partnership with the Cityzen Development group. Enjoy the recent photos that I took this past long weekend.
