Sited on the docks, the tower is categorized as an urban sculpture, not only for its direct relationship with the harbor, but its visual orientation toward the city.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/6k/6k4ns8rsjw0vxybq.jpg"></p><p>The staircase offers perforated panoramic views as visitors climb up (although a lift has been installed for those unable to climb stairs), while the steel-plate construction also recalls the feeling of being at sea.
