Absolute Towers also known as Absolute World are two interesting residential towers built in Mississauga, near Toronto, Canada. Rare and unique design made those towers stand out among others.


Designed by MAD Architects, those two towers will attract everyone's attention. They are new landmark for Mississauga, suburb right next to Toronto. Tower 1, the taller one, is 167m tall with 56 floors, while Tower 2 is  151m tall with 50 floor.

"In place of the simple, functional logic of modernism, our design expresses the complex and multiple needs of contemporary society. This building is more than just a functional machine: it responds to the significance of being located at the junction of two main streets, elegantly bearing its landmark status and acting as a gateway to the city beyond. It is something beautiful, sculptural and human."
