MahaNakhon will be the most ambitious complex of contemporary architecture and design in Thailand and the tallest building in Bangkok.

The 77-story tower has been designed by OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture), the architects behind Beijing’s iconic CCTV tower in Beijing, China.

A spiraling incision of “architectural pixels” travels up the building, interrupting the curtain wall to reveal a series of terraces for larger units and shared spaces.

The 1.6 million-square-foot, $515 million complex plans to include 200 apartments, a 150-room “Bangkok Edition” hotel operated by Marriott Group International and mixed-use public and commercial space.

Construction begins later this year with an intended completion in late 2012.
