Top Deck

The top deck at +460 m is designed as a sloping elliptical square of 54 by 42 meter, where one can sit down and enjoy the panoramic view. Here one can feel the effects of the super-high rise physically. One can feel the reduced temperature, see far on clear days, taste the clouds on a cloudy day, and possible feel the structure sway in the wind.
The top is shaved off diagonally, not toward the N-S central axis, but instead N-W towards the old city center, so that while sitting there one can oversee both new and old, and so the tower ′s form becomes an instrument symbolically bridging between the old and the new.
