Radisson Blu Hotel
Completed in March 2013, the Radisson Blue Riverside hotel in the Swedish port city of Gothenburg overhangs the Göta river like a shimmering shard of titanic proportions.
Constructed for Radisson Hotel’s owner the Winn Hotel Group by major Swedish contractor Skanska, this striking building accommodates 266 guest rooms, together with conference facilities, a bar and restaurant with outdoor seating, and a deluxe roof-top spa.

Green in more than one way

On a misty day in Rotterdam, the taller of the two towers that make up the Maas Tower development seems to disappear into the sky. Oddly, on a clear day, the effect is not entirely different. Although the light silvery colour of the tower stands out sharply against a blue sky, there is a fading away at the top that cannot just be put down to the diminution that comes with distance.
