Facts

  • The tower is expressed as being constructed in three distinct sections.
  • The tower's top section houses air traffic control staff; the section is multi-faceted so as to reduce glare.
  • The tower received a commendation in the Architectural Review Awards for Emerging Architecture, 2005.
  • The concrete mid-section is roughly equal to 11 storeys, is unoccupied and wrapped by a steel frame-supported taut, translucent membrane which appears to twist as it rises; the membrane can be backlit with projected images at night.
  • The lower six storeys resemble a glass cube which houses staff with some air traffic controllers.
