BIG受到委托在亚利桑那州凤凰城市中心设计了一座高420英尺的多功能观光塔,这做
观光塔将会是凤凰城的象征,天际线上的高潮。这里将成为游客和市民提供饱览周围
山脉和日落美景的地方。

BIG完美的完成这个不同寻常的任务,瞭望塔的造型是一个大球落在一个混凝土立柱
上,大球外壳是玻璃幕墙,内部的螺旋式坡道连接电梯和顶部,人们坐电梯到达大球
后,可以沿着螺旋坡道游览,观赏城市360度美景。就像是古根海姆博物馆的游线路
径那样,人们在这个连续动态的过程中领略无限风光。不同的是,路径的宽度并不是
一致的,而是变化的,这样在没有垂直物理障碍的总体连续性空间中,有着独特的视
觉和游览体验,同时还能灵活的创建展览和活动空间。

人们到达大球顶部后,可以选择结束旅程,或者到餐厅层用餐。

这个瞭望塔成功的塑造出具有悬空感的类行星式游览之旅。塔的地面处用作城市公共
绿荫广场。塔的设计亦融入可持续理念。

BIG is commissioned by Novawest to design a 420 ft tall mixed-use observation tower
to serve as a symbol for the city of Phoenix, Arizona.

Located in downtown Phoenix, the 70,000 sf Observation Tower shall add a significant
structure to the Phoenix skyline from which to enjoy the city’s spectacular views of the
surrounding mountain ranges and dramatic sunsets. Phoenix-based developer
Novawest, commissioned the team to create a destination event to provide tourists and
citizens of Phoenix alike the chance to enjoy the unique features of the Valley of the
Sun.

"This is the right place and the right time for a signature project for downtown Phoenix
and we knew the design needed to be something extraordinary. BIG has delivered
something exceptional, blending form and function in a way that will change the local
skyline forever and will give visitors a once-in-a-lifetime experience." Brian Stowell,
Novawest.

The future observation tower is conceived as a tall core of reinforced concrete with an
open-air spiral sphere at its top, resembling a metaphorical pinfirmly marking a location
on a map. The spiraling sphere contains flexible exhibition, retail and recreational
spaces which are accessed via three glass elevators that connect the base with the
summit and offer panoramic views of the city and the tower’s programs as visitors
ascend or descend.

Walking downwards from the top through a continuous spiral promenade, the visitors of
the observation tower experience all of the building’s programs in a constant motion,
while enjoying dynamic 360 degree views of the city of Phoenix and the Arizonian
landscape.

“Like the monsoons, the haboobs and the mountains of the surrounding Arizonian
landscape, the Pin becomes a point of reference and a mechanism to set the
landscape in motion through the movement of the spectator. Like the Guggenheim
museum of New York offers visitors a unique art experience descending around its
central void, the motion at the Pin is turned inside-out allowing visitors to contemplate
the surrounding city and landscape of Phoenix. Like a heavenly body hovering above
the city the Pin will allow visitors to descend from pole to pole in a dynamic three
dimensional experience seemingly suspended in midair. “ Bjarke Ingels, Founding
Partner, BIG.

The spiral layout combines the different programmatic elements and the circulation into
a continuous dynamic twirling space which is proportioned according to the movement
of the visitors, producing a unique viewing experience of the surroundings. Instead of a
constant width, the spiraling promenade starts from zero at the point of arrival, reaches
its maximum width at the middle, and shrinks back to zero at the point of departure.

Separation between the programmatic elements within the sphere happens not through
physical vertical barrier-walls, but softly through the slope and the height difference to
preserve a total continuity and create a flexible space for exhibitions and events.

Once the visitors reach the middle of the sphere, they can choose to either conclude
their journey by taking the elevator back to the ground, or continue to the restaurant
levels at the lower hemisphere. The motion resembles a journey through the center of a
planet, and a travel from the north to the south pole.

The base of the tower will serve as a public plaza offering shade, water features and a
small amount of retail together with a subterranean queuing area. The tower will serve
as a working model of sustainable energy practices, incorporating a blend of solar and
other technologies.
