I love the newly city-approved Beach & Howe Tower in Vancouver, Canada, a gorgeous 54-story apartment building designed by Danish architects Bjarke Ingels Group. It gets extremely thin on its base to avoid a passing highway. From some angles, it looks like it may fall on its side. Enjoy the beautiful pictures.

Lets just accept that it will fall, isn’t that exciting?

I would guess that this building might increase the local need for Psychiatry by 20%, that would include 90% of the people that live in the building and 10% from those who can see if from where they live. The Psychiatrists will discovery that just the right architecture is good for business.
