What an eyesight the NL Architects Container Tower would be. The Harbor of Rotterdam put together a competition to develop not only a radar tower, but also a landmark, and NL Architects definitely stepped up to the challenge.
Proposing the use of industrial sea containers that have been reinforced in order to have 25 stacked safely, this NL Architects Container Tower is sure to draw tourists. Especially with the top utilized as a viewing platform.
