A diving tower proposal for the south coast of Norway.

The characteristic landscape of Tjøme has been an protagonist for the use of materials. The concrete core is to be seen as an extension of the soft cliffs. Corten steel details is to be found in the landscape as mooring rings for old ships to be anchored.

The structure is both pragmatic and honest. Folded steel elements are simply bolted on to the load bearing concrete core. Bolt heads becomes ornamental, and revealed the tectonics of the tower.
