The alternately open and closed serpentine structure offers views of all sorts of relics characteristic of the old airport. Like the F16 shelters, runway and bunkers. As such, the tower is more than a route from A to B and tells the story of the area’s history.
The shell of the tower is a loard bearin structure. Constructed of the serpentine shape combined with vertical bars. These bars have an aesthetic significance in addition to a constructive function. The varied pattern of the bars creates a dynamic shadow effect on the shell of the tower depending on the position of the sun. This creates a camouflage pattern of light and shadow and blends into the surroundings.
