Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

A New Skyline

A New Skyline

Ultra Swank continues to collaborate with British lifestyle magazine Chic Today and today the second article from me was published in their magazine. It is called A New Skyline and focuses its attention on the architectural changes in the western harbor in Malmö, Sweden.

Not more than 20 years ago it was a rural and industrial area. Today it is a upscale and chic residential area with a 54 story designers dream skyscraper as its crown jewel. Comments are as always much appreciated.

    Congrats on the latest article! One day you’ll own the magazine! Happy 3rd birthday as well.

  • Chris

    Thanks Charles! And by the way, what are you doing up at five in the morning? Making evil schemes to take over the world from your lair I suppose?

  • Charles

    I’m an early riser. I don’t want to take over the world. I just want to invade and conquer the evil empire–Canada–so that we can add more states to the union. Once that has occurred, I plan to build WalMarts all over Sweden so that American mediocrity will be felt. Oh wait! The world has felt American mediocrity for 8 years. Ummm. Nevermind! I’ll hatch another plan.

    No need for any Walmarts! We already have plenty of McDonalds, Burger Kings, Pizza Huts, Wayne’s Coffees and who knows what else. Good luck with the elections, don’t screw it up again people ;-)
