The observation tower’s design was inspired by the nature itself that is defined by the inner relationships of living and non-living components. This harmony of the counterpoles creates a continuous system in our environment. The tower with its character tries to become part of this system and blur the borders between natural and artificial environments.
In this design the relationship between nature and architecture gradually evolves upwards. The construction visually dissolves into the surrounding area making the tower a symbolic link between heaven and earth.
