Lighthouse Urban by Yuliyan Mikov is a stunning concept design for a future seaside watchtower. With a body of glistening woven steel, the lighthouse is sure to be a landmark no matter where it is placed. When viewed at an angle, the Lighthouse Urban almost looks like an abstract hooded figure watching over the city--an imposing yet reassuring sight.

Implications - This stunning lighthouse demonstrates how even the most traditional architectural structures can be altered and invigorated with a sense of modernism. Mikov does a wonderful job at incorporating the theme of the water into the design, and ensuring that the structure still retains its practical purpose. Charming and pragmatic, the Lighthouse Urban is a modern fisherman's dream come true! See more shots of Lighthouse Urban by Yuliyan Mikov above.
