The Tallest Building Planned for Europe is Going ino a Swiss Village?!

Californian firm Morphosis (headed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Thom Mayne) has revealed plans for a slim mirrored skyscraper that – if it goes ahead – will be the tallest building in Europe. The part where things get weird is that it's due to be located in Vals: a small Swiss village with a population in the region of just 1,000.

I have to admit, something like this is what I'd expected when I was younger and thinking "Future!" I have a hard time seeing it as economically viable though.
