Iceland Tower Competition

The Iceland Cave Tower Competition was a Bee Breeders event in an ongoing design series, set in the extraordinary landscape of Iceland.

The design concept is 3 towers rising out of the ground as a germinating green young plant. The 'plant' of towers is to form a visual guide at night, drawing visitors to a unique spectacular natural phenomenon.

The towers are designed as a freeform 3D spaceframe from modular steel circular hollow sections of various dimensions, interconnected with high-tension steel cables that contribute to lateral stability.

An attractive eco-friendly visitors center surrounds the towers, including a bridge that crosses a seismic fissure which is especially significant as a marker of the boundary between the two tectonic plates of the European and North American continents.
