double spiral tower


Slowly, the telescope begins to come to life. Realising that I actually know nothing about how to build a 30 foot high spiral tower with a bowl on top, I have sought the help of a structural engineer friend, Neil Thomas (Atelier One).

Today a bundle of beautiful technical drawings arrived. Here, a tower built from two entwined spirals.
