Salling Tower at Aarhus Harbour Dock 7

The Salling Tower is shaped like a sharp origami cut, urban sculpture with a significant architectural expression. The white steel tower stands out as a glowing landmark giving identity to the area and act as a point of reference and meeting in this new part of the city.

The tower creates a lively route from the quayside to the viewing platform 7.5 meters above. The visitor is lead below the expressive cantilevered body of the tower, to a position hovering above the reflective water surface of the harbor. The movement continues upwards via a spacious staircase fitted for seating – offering magnificent panoramic views of the harbor and the bay. The journey culminates at a spacious and sheltered viewing platform above the treetops of the boulevard.

The structure is made of welded steel plates, produced in a shipyard and sailed to the site.
