Two Observation Towers Link Iceland’s Tectonic Plates in 00group’s Monumental Proposal

Shanghai-based studio 00group’s concept for a new Icelandic monument, which they call “Anchor of the Plates,” bridges two tectonic plates on a site that overlooks a seismic fissure called Vogagjá. The monument is composed of two curving observation towers (one with a visitors center) bound by an adjustable rope bridge. A harmonious vision, the poetic swoop of the design lends functional value and offers numerous metaphoric interpretations. Read more about the proposal and see more photos at designboom.
