The 82 foot (25m) high tower, whose name translates to Marsh Tower, is a sculptural object surrounded by sweeping landscapes designed as a key tourist landmark.

The Corten steel exterior defines the tower’s simple design, used to create a natural aesthetic that blends with the surrounding environment.

To reach the top of the tower, there are steel stairs that wind around a central core. There’s also a wheelchair-accessible elevator within the core of the structure, providing access via the ground-level ramp.

BIG worked with the blacksmiths of Schacks Trapper to create the tower, which also includes safety rails that follow the design of the stairs.
