About: Nature and forest them self suggested the architectural
idea: pine forest. The observation tower is designed in
the way that it will blend-in in to surrounding landscape.
The shape, size, color of main columns form a little
“group of trees”, aka “stand of pines”. Observation
platforms of non-regular shape, just like stylized crowns
of a pine trees. Stairway winds around the columns in
non-regular manner, just like path winds around the
trees in the forest. New views of forest are opening on
the way up. Journey ends at the platform, from which
opens magnificent views of vast Dzūkija Landscape.
