Lajahlahty bird watching tower
By the shore line of Lajahlahty near Helsinki, the need for a bird watching tower began.
From the concept of a tree and how it’s ducts keep it alive and steady, this “reed alike” bird watching tower came to life.
It is built with 10m high wood poles (with finger joins of 1m) tie together using something similar to a cable tie.
The stair case is an independent structure from the rest of the tower to keep trembling away from the watchers already at the tower.
