Watch Flower by Bjarke Ingels

Watch Flower

Watch FlowerWatch Flower is created as a three dimensional promenade that floats in the space above the harbor edge and the water at DOCK 7 in Aarhus Harbor.
Watch FlowerA 155 m long sloping promenade meanders like a mountain path along a cliff side peaking at the height of 7.5 meters. Designed with handicap accessibility, head clearance and statics in mind, the promenade takes shape as a flower gradually growing from the concrete harbor edge towards the sky.
Watch FlowerEach turn offers a new viewpoint with unique views to Aarhus Cathedral, the historical city centre, the leisure harbor and the Aarhus bay area.
Watch FlowerAt the same time the experience of going from the harbor edge to the viewpoints becomes a three dimensional journey of discovery about the meeting between city and bay, land and water.
