The tower, which was inaugurated in August 2015, incorporates two official viewing platforms, the upper one of which offers a 360 degree view of Aarhus.

At night, the mast-like geometry of the Tower's exterior is illuminated by LEDs.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/j7/j7fwv9wm14644idq.jpg"></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/86464409/dorte-mandrup-arkitekter-to-design-new-tower-landmark-at-aarhus-harbor-in-denmark Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter to design new tower landmark at Aarhus Harbor in Denmark Justine Testado 2013-11-13T18:27:00-05:00 >2013-11-14T07:28:32-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/m7/m7u7e0i92zbcskff.jpg" width="514" height="323" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter won the competition to design the new tower landmark for Aarhus Harbor in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark.
