The video has the lowest quality I have seen in a long time. However, I might soon take a trip to Malmö and check it out...

Interesting looking structure...but i must say after seeing that horrid ad--it left me with no interest whatsoever steeping foot in this Mall. The ad should be 4 a Dubai Mall instead! Thx Frans

They could have spent the money to help the poor, and the students and the only Earth we have.

Is this an exercise in waste?

If they had rubbed a couple of brain cells together they could have spent the money advertising the good they were doing for the conservation of our ONE and ONLY planet. Then they would have multiplied the money just from advertising do gooding.

Interesting design concept but if I go to Sweden I want to see the countryside.

Thanks for the article Frans, but a trend toward more and more use of glass for the exterior walls of buildings has had a number of detrimental outcomes. One is that songbirds die by the hundreds of thousands. Another is that the glass panes are falling out of the older buildings, especially those built in climates where temperature extremes exist. Toronto, Canada has seen the sheer drop of numerous huge panes of glass from very high up over the last few years, on downtown streets. By dumb luck, no one has been killed or injured - yet. I would like to see some movement in architecture back to more organic designs.
