The design of the radar tower is a synthesis of architecture, sustainability, technology and economy. The shape of the tower is logic and intelligent. The sturdy foot is oriented parallel to the road for maximum stability and minimum impact on the dike. The similarly sturdy head of the tower is oriented in the direction of the Yangtze Canal and provides the necessary space for installations. The slender taille emphasises the minimised use of material: form follows function.
